Description & Analysis

Proofs of 1900 are considered rare by any measure. Only 124 pieces were struck, and of that number very few exist today. Estimates of the number of survivors range from a low of 30-35 pieces (Akers) to as many as 40-45 (Breen). We tend to agree with Walter's higher estimate.
