Description & Analysis

One of 80 proofs of this date struck. Need we say that only a fraction of these survive, and Akers estimates that there are only 20-25 pieces extant. This is a very small number for a date thought to be the most common of the decade. 'Common' takes on an entirely new meaning when discussing these rare proof gold coins
