Description & Analysis

Some 725 proofs of this denomination were included in sales of silver proof sets, but the number of additional pieces sold went unrecorded. It was probably not significant, as this date is fairly scarce. The coins were well made, however, as evidenced by the population of Cameo and Ultra Cameo pieces.
