Description & Analysis

Of the 960 proofs coined, it's likely that at least some were later destroyed as unsold. The true net mintage will probably never be known.

This is another issue that has a very low mintage of currency strikes, as well. The proofs, while more available overall, are still quite scarce. As may be seen from the photos, even proofs are not always fully struck. This coin is indistinct at the bow and its knot.
