Description & Analysis

The proofs of this date are all of the Plain 5 variety, suggesting that this date style preceded the Fancy 5. Gems are very scarce, with fully red pieces being quite rare. The streaky toning seen on the illustrated example is all too common and helps to explain the rarity of pristine survivors.
