Description & Analysis

The number of proof trimes sold in 1855 went unrecorded, but the book by Kevin Flynn and Winston Zack provides an estimate of 45-55 pieces, which seems reasonable. The number of survivors seems to be about half of that, and these are seldom offered.

Like the 1854 proofs, those of 1855 have a repunched date, with duplicate numerals 855. This die was subsequently used to strike currency coins, with less of the underlying date visible.
