Description & Analysis

Proof specimens of this initial and briefly used design are a scarce and comparatively underpriced issue in the Morgan series. Bowers estimates that 300-500 pieces were struck, but, of course, far fewer are known today and survivors are more apt to be mishandled than the later issues.
