Description & Analysis

Sales of the silver proof set rose in 1866, perhaps in response to the addition of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST to the larger coins. Still, 725 pieces is a very small number by modern standards, and this issue is certainly not common. These coins compete with the very few surviving Mint State currency strikes for collector attention.

Some proofs of this date display repunching on the date, but there is no premium for such coins.
