Description & Analysis

This is yet another remarkably rare issue, with just six examples confirmed, one of which is held by the Smithsonian Institution. That specimen was almost certainly obtained when the U. S. Mint's own cabinet was donated to the S. I. in 1923.

The reverse die for this proof is easily recognized by three diagonal lines projecting outward from the highest leaf.
