Description & Analysis

Interest in current proof issues hit a slump during the late 1890s and through the next decade. 1896 was the first date since 1877 to have proof sales lower than 2,000 pieces. This is ironic, as the proofs of 1896-1901 were some of the finest made by the U. S. Mint until the 1980s.

Fully red gems are rare, though cameo contrast is more often seen with this and the next several dates than in previous years.
