Description & Analysis

The proofs of this year typically are found better preserved than many of 1892, due probably to the fact that they went almost entirely to numismatists who knew how to handle them properly.

Gems are fairly plentiful, though typically these show only partial or one-sided cameo contrast. Those displaying sufficient contrast to be certified as Cameo are more scarce, while Ultra Cameo pieces are very elusive.

The so-called 1893/2 proofs are now believed to be the result of a defective date punch, rather than true overdates, and NGC no longer certifies them as anything other than normal proofs.
