Description & Analysis

A seldom offered proof Quarter Eagle issue with a miniscule original production of 106 pieces. Survivors probably number fewer than two-thirds of the official mintage. Proofs of this date can be distinguished from their business strike counterparts by faint repunching on the last two digits in the date, visible only under a loupe.
