Description & Analysis

All proof 1873 dimes without arrowheads at the date were coined in January and February and feature the Closed 3 date logotype that the chief coiner found so objectionable for its resemblance to an 8. These were struck with a single die pair, and an unknown portion of the 600 piece mintage was destroyed as obsolete on July 10.

Typical of proofs from the 1870s, Cameo strikes are elusive, and Ultra Cameo coins are extremely rare.
