Description & Analysis

The 1857 proof dime seems to be slightly more scarce than the 1856 edition with which it shares a common reverse die. No mintage figures were kept for proof coin sales before 1860, so the number minted remains unknown.

Cameo examples are extremely rare, but a few are available to the advanced collector.
