Description & Analysis

As one would expect, sales of proof half dollars plunged by a third after the initial excitement of this design's debut in 1892. The 1893 edition is noticeably less available in all grades than its predecessor, yet a fair number of gems survive for the advanced type or series collector. Cameo proofs are available at a premium, but Ultra Cameo pieces are extremely rare.
