Description & Analysis

The twin challenges of modest mintage and poor manufacture makes the 1891 proof cent a tough one to find in gem condition. The strike on this issue is often less than full, a phenomenon which author Rick Snow attributed to single strikes.

The Census figures below also reveal that 1891 proof cents are very scarce with cameo contrast.
