Description & Analysis

Published mintage figures of 460 proofs probably represents net sales after melting of the remainder, and the original coinage may have been higher.

1863 proof trimes were well made, and the number of Cameo pieces is higher than for earlier date. The example illustrated is particularly sharp.

Walter Breen reported an overdate, but photos reveal that this die was simply repunched with the same 1863 logotype. Being a proof, there is little or no premium for this variety.
