Description & Analysis

Why the mintage figures for 1870 proofs were so high is unknown, but the reconstructed numbers include 1000 (silver proof sets) and 129 (minor proof sets). How many of these survive today is uncertain, but this date seems to be a bit more available than earlier ones in high grades.
