Description & Analysis

By 1858 requests for proof coins had reached the point where the Mint director published instructions for their purchase. Proofs were still priced at face value, but this would soon change.

The figure of 300 pieces minted is an estimate, as no actual numbers were kept. Walter Breen placed the probable number at 80+. 1858 was for many years the kick-off date for coin albums directed at proof collectors, but this fixed starting point has since become blurred.
