Description & Analysis

From time to time the U. S. Mint has created exceptional examples of its coinage for souvenir or presentation purposes. These are coins that do not fit the current definition of a proof, yet they clearly were struck with superior care. Such pieces are labeled as Specimen (SP) in place of the usual MS designation to denote their special status. How such pieces were made is always uncertain, but it is likely that both the dies and planchets were polished to some degree and care taken to impart a full strike.
