Description & Analysis

A single pair of dies produced the proofs of this issue. Larry Briggs observed that numeral 53 and the adjacent arrowhead were lightly repunched, but this is readily evident in photos.

Eight examples have been traced, and it's doubtful that more survive. Five proofs sets of the fractional silver coins having arrowheads at the date were reportedly coined on March 3, weeks ahead of mass production for circulation.
