Description & Analysis

Just over a dozen proofs are known from a single die marriage. N-2 (photos) is distinctive for it small numerals 18 punched over larger ones. This obverse was a curious choice for striking proofs, but perhaps it was the only one available when needed. The currency pieces from this die pair were coined subsequent to the proofs.
