Description & Analysis

Proof set sales continued their upward climb in 1955, achieving a figure some 60% higher than in 1954.

Gem survivors are fairly common, despite the fact that many of this year's proofs were delivered in the same plastic bags that toned so many 1954 cents. Cameo pieces are readily available to the specialist, but Ultra Cameo coins remain frustratingly scarce.
