Description & Analysis

Gerry Fortin's website indicates that just a single proof is known, while Walter Breen's 1988 encyclopedia asserted that "At least 3" were known. Breen figures have come into question in recent years, so it may be that the NGC-certified example is indeed unique. It is of the normal, Large Stars variety. The stars were not included in the master matrix for this coin type until mid-1840, so these had to be punched by hand into each working die.
