Description & Analysis

The 1865 proof five is obviously very rare, with a mintage of only 25 pieces. Of that number, only 10 specimens are believed to be extant today. Its rarity and desirability are further enhanced by the rarity of 1865 business strikes, of which a mere 1,270 pieces were produced.
