Description & Analysis

Probably because of this date's unavailability as a proof, it is not generally known by anyone outside specialists as the rarity that it is. Only 30 pieces were originally struck, and it has been reliably estimated that today somewhere around 12 or 13 may still exist in all grades. A diagnostic of 1866 proofs is that the tops of the wreath touch.
