1845 Quarter Dollar, PR641845 25C PR64 NGC. CAC. High R.7 as a proof. Like all other known proof 1845 quarters, this piece has the date (845) heavily repunched to the right with the original digits left of the final position. Every vertical shield line on the reverse extends into the horizontal crossbars, most nearly reaching the top of the shield. There are no die cracks, clash marks, or other die anomalies on this example.
We published a roster of four known proof 1845 quarters in our February 2012 auction, including one in the Smithsonian Institution. The Newman example was unrecorded in that roster and represents a fifth known example. The present offering is the third of four privately held 1845 quarters that have appeared in our auctions. No other auction firm, past or present, has handled more than one specimen.
The known specimens include the PR66 NGC Pittman-Kaufman coin that appeared in our January 2008 and January 2009 sales; the PR65 NGC Eliasberg specimen that appeared in a January 1999 Bowers and Merena sale; the present PR64 NGC Eric P. Newman example; the PR64 NGC Earle-Ryder specimen that we sold in February 2012; and a proof example in the Smithsonian Institution.
This spectacular near-Gem exhibits faint hairlines that limit the grade, with light ivory surfaces and powder-blue peripheral toning on the obverse, and deep blue patina with splashes of champagne on the reverse. The design elements are boldly detailed as expected.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23W8, PCGS# 5539)
