Description & Analysis

Why sales of proof cents fell in 1887 is an unexplained anomaly. This had little impact on the number of survivors, however, though fully red examples are quite rare.

The quality of some 1887 proof cents was off, as made, and the example illustrated reveals a less than full strike at the feather tips. Cameo contrast is rare on this issue.
