Description & Analysis

Proof sales leaped another 50% from 1952, the result of both normal growth in the hobby and a speculative mania for proof sets that would peak in 1957.

Non-cameo gems of this date are fairly plentiful. Those displaying Cameo or Ultra Cameo devices are more available than for earlier Lincoln proofs, but they still form a minority of the total population.

Doubling is visible on numerals 19 for one proof die. While not especially rare, this variety is popular.
