Description & Analysis

Proof 1879 Dollars show an interesting bit of repunching on the reverse. This is most readily noticeable on the base of the E and R in AMERICA. The R appears to have been patched from a broken punch. This same reverse was used to strike some of the proof Dollars from 1880 as well.
