Description & Analysis

Because this was the first year of production for Half Dollar proofs since 1915, a large number of coins fell into the hands of new collectors and non-collectors who did not know how to properly care for proofs. As a result, many were cleaned or otherwise impaired, and today very few are extant with unaltered and original surfaces.
