Description & Analysis

Much underrated in comparison to its two famous proof-only predecessors, the 1877 is an issue of just 1,468 business strikes and a mere 20 proofs. True proofs of this date can be distinguished from deceptive, prooflike early strikings by a rust spot on Liberty's lower curls and, again, by the date being placed lower on the reverse.
