Description & Analysis

In 1854 proofs were obtainable on request at face value, though very few numismatists knew of this service or availed themselves of it. Perhaps a few dozen proof trimes were sold that year, and it's unlikely that more than 20 survive. These were seemingly coined with two obverse dies, as some examples have a distinctive repunched date that is found on currency pieces, as well.
