Description & Analysis

With the coin market booming, this year's proof set sales nearly doubled those of the year previously. By this point the proof sets of previous years were such objects of speculative trading that some dealers actually displayed chalk boards at coin shows with the their Buy/Sell prices updated several times daily.

This issue is common across all grades through PF 69, with enough certified as Cameo to be readily collectable. Ultra Cameo examples, however, remain fairly scarce.

A minor DDO variety is known for 1956 proof dimes, but this is of interest solely to specialists.
