Description & Analysis

Examples of this issue are always in demand due both to their low mintage and to their status as the first year of the proof emissions. (Although Walter Breen's Complete Encyclopedia has made some claims concerning the existence of early [1916-17] proofs, no such examples have ever been certified at either service.)
