Description & Analysis

The mintages of both proofs and currency strikes rose quite a bit from 1865, and this issue is not nearly as rare. Gems are still quite elusive, but Cameo proofs become increasingly available for each year starting 1863.

This same die was later used for the so-called circulating edition, though precious few of these coins saw any real circulation. Numerals 66 are slightly repunched, but this is of no real interest to proof collectors.
