Ron Guth: Proof 1842 Silver Dollars are very rare, with probably less than a dozen known.  PCGS has certified only three examples, which is one of the smallest populations of any Seated Liberty Dollars in Proof.  Those certified by PCGS include single examples at PR65, PR64, and PR62.  NGC has also certified a number of Proof 1842 Seated Dollars, but it is unclear if there are any resubmissions of duplications in their listings.  No Cameo Proof 1842 Seated Dollars are known at present, though it is possible that some might exist.
