Description & Analysis

Some 930 silver proof sets were sold in 1885, and this represents the number of proof dimes distributed that year. This is a relatively common issue within the proof series, and just a single pair of dies was used.

Cameo pieces are common enough to be collectable, but Ultra Cameo specimens are in very short supply.
