Description & Analysis

Second year of the new Legend Obverse design, the 1861 had an official mintage of 625 proofs. However, the Mint was still overproducing proof coinage in this year (a tradition they began in 1858) and an unknown number were melted as unsold at year's end. Apparently the 'strike it and they will come' philosophy only worked to a certain point.
