This should be a great one! We all know survival estimates play the largest role in determining a coins scarcity. Often times, mintage counts can be deceiving due to melting, shipping overseas, etc.

Rules: You can post pictures of up to three coins in your collection with the lowest estimated survival figures. Proofs, business strikes, all are welcome. And before we go there, I should address that we all know survival estimates are nothing more than educated guesses. So let's try and keep that debate off the thread if possible.

The 1847-O half eagle is rare in all grades. Probably no more than four dozen are known in all grades and most grade VF35 or lower. Properly graded EF coins are very rare and this date is extremely rare in AU. (per Doug Winter)

It took me a year and a half and the purchase of Colonial and Early American Coins to identify this one: 1787 Connecticut, Miller 14-H, R-3. Between 250 and 500 surviving. .

Unreal guys! I wasn't expecting to see coins with survival rates under 100.

Keep them coming!

@MikeF, if you will indulge me posting a non-US coin, I can get us down to a surviorship of 7-10 pieces extant:

It is a Kreuzer from the Austrian Duchy of Wiener Neustadt, dated 1459 AD. Here is more information about this coin from a previous CCF post of mine: http://goccf.com/t/260883




On the other hand, if it really was your intent to restrict this to US coins only, just let me know and I'll delete my post.

Here are two of my coins with a low survival rates. The first is an 1850 Half with an estimated 600 survivorship.




The second is an 1847/6 Half with an estimated 125 survivorship.

MikeF, to clarify, are you talking about lowest overall survival (in all grades), condition rarities, or both?

Here's my one dollar type set! Off the top of my head, I believe the 1855-D is between 75-100 pieces known.

Enjoy

I think I can get it down to a 4-6 estimate - at least, assuming that my attribution is correct, and that I correctly interpreted the catalogue...




Elbing, Swedish occupation of, solidus, 1657.

Obverse: CAROL GVST D G, crowned CG monogram within inner circle
Reverse: SOLIDVS PRVSSIAE 57, arms of Elbing in cartouche within inner circle

KM# 65 (listed as "rare"), Numista 96629 (rarity 97 - only my example), Kopicki 9655 (R7, estimated 4-6 examples known).

Conditional rarities are fine. Just explain why they are rare in their condition. World and ancient coins are fine in my book as well.
