Description & Analysis

The mintage figure provided is that for the number of complete silver proof sets, which included the minor pieces, too. These latter coins were also available in minor proof sets, so the actual number produced may be nearly doubled.

The survival rate of early bronze proofs is rather low, with many having been spent or so badly impaired as to render them almost non-collectable. The NGC Census numbers tell the whole story.
