Description & Analysis

1858 was the first year in which the U. S. Mint publicly advertised its sales of proof coins, though experienced numismatists had known of them for several years. The figure of 200 1858 proof cents coined is merely an estimate, and the exact figure will never be known.

This is a rare issue given the great popularity of small cent collecting. The Large Letters proofs appear to be somewhat more rare than the Small Letters variety, and indeed, only a single die pair is known. Unlike the currency pieces, which typically are weakly struck at head and tail, these proofs are needle-sharp and have very reflective fields.
