Description & Analysis

Proof sales were a modest 600 sets, and this date is moderately scarce. With the mintage of currency pieces rising to nearly half a million pieces in 1868, there is less price pressure of this proof than on those of 1863-67.

Cameo pieces are elusive, while Ultra Cameo specimens are truly rare.

Two die pairs were used for this issue, and the normal dies are illustrated above. A spectacular variety was created when the numeral 1 was punched twice into the lower drapery. The bases of each numeral are clearly visible above numerals 18 of the date.
