Rod Sweet Collection - Bowers & Merena 7/2005:1008 (as PCGS PR64), $20,125
 
The 2005 Bowers & Merena catalog “Almost certainly” attributes this coin to Wayte Raymond 8/1938:132 - Floyd T. Starr Collection - Stack's 10/1992:588 (as Raw Choice Brilliant Proof, nearly Gem), $33,000, but the plate in the 2005 catalog matches neither of the two Proof 1847 Dollars in the Starr sale.
