Description & Analysis

1858 has long been considered the first year in which United States proof coins are generally collectable. Indeed, sales rose dramatically starting in 1858, as the Mint finally published guidelines for its proof sales for both onsite and mail orders. Old coin albums for proof coins traditionally began with this date, due to the greater availability of 1858 and subsequent years.

No formaly records exist which would provide a firm figure for the number of proof trimes sold in 1858, and estimates range from 210 to more than 300 pieces. Scholar Walter Breen was probably closest with his simple notation "?"

The greater number of survivors for 1858 relative to earlier years has also provided a very small but collectable pool of Cameo specimens. A single proof die is repunched 1858/1-58.
