Description & Analysis

The mintage figure of 460 pieces represents the number of coins sold within the silver proof sets, and the actual total will never be known.

This issue is fairly scarce, especially in comparison to the 1862 proofs, which have benefitted from an old hoard. Gem examples are elusive, though a good percentage of these proofs display cameo contrast.
