Description & Analysis

470 proofs were reportedly sold as part of complete silver proof sets, which also included the minor coins of cent and two-cent piece. Most 1864 proof trimes were quite well made, and they are highly desired due to the great rarity of MS currency pieces. Cameo examples are more available for this date than for others before 1863.

One obverse die has a repunched numeral 4 and doubling of the shield lines at an odd angle from the final impression. As always with these low mintage proofs, variety draw little attention from collectors.
