Description & Analysis

Despite a fairly typical proof mintage of 710 coins, this date is tough to locate in the higher grades. This appears to be an indication of substandard quality as made. Cameo proofs are scarce, Ultra Cameo coins essentially unknown.

Two die pairs were employed for this date, but there is nothing about them that would prompt collectors to seek both varieties.
