Description & Analysis

The Mint's estimation of potential proof sales proved way off the mark again in 1861. Reportedly, 1,000 pieces were coined, but at least 600 were destroyed after the end of the calendar year. Walter Breen speculated that some of these may have instead been released to circulation, but there's no proof of this.

All 1861 proof dimes were coined with a single die pair, including the revised obverse on which six partial lines are visible above Liberty's banner. A fair number have been certified by NGC as Cameo, but Ultra Cameo examples are exceedingly rare.
