Description & Analysis

600 proofs were sold with the complete silver proof sets of 1869. Trimes were not offered separately, so this figure is probably correct for the total.

What Walter Breen declared to be an overdate is simply numerals 69 repunched south of the first impression. Given the overall rarity of proofs, this variety adds no value.
