Description & Analysis

Collectors didn't seem to take any particular interest in the supplemental arrowheads, as this year's proof sales were a reasonable 700 sets. A single pair of dies was employed, with extremely minor repunching of numeral 4.

Someone in the engraving department must have observed that the level arrowheads used in 1873 ran counter to the curvature of the obverse legend, as this year's arrowheads were tilted upward from the date.

There was no improvement in the overall quality of the Mint's proof coins, and top-grade gems are very rare. So, too, are Cameo specimens, with Ultra Cameo pieces essentially unknown.
