Description & Analysis

Despite the lowest sales figure since 1877, the proof cents dated 1903 are not particularly rare, and the availability of red gems is comparable to other dates from the period.

Cameo pieces are all but unknown, as the Mint failed to prepare its proof dies for 1903 in such a manner as to provide the desired contrast. Instead, fresh proof dies revealed fine polishing lines in place of frosted cavities.
