Description & Analysis

This is the first proof half dime since 1862 for which the availability of currency pieces is not a factor in determining value. The value and desirability of 1869 proofs are determined by their own merits.

Ultra Cameo examples are all but unknown for this date, as the quality of the U. S. Mint's proofs began a slide which accelerated during the 1870s and did not end fully until the 1890s.
