Description & Analysis

Proofs of this date can be distinguished from early business strikes by a higher date that is more heavily punched on the 7. Collector demand for proof gold coinage increased only slightly in the years immediately following the Civil War, with mint records indicating an issuance of just 50 coins under this method of manufacture in 1867. From that small number, as few as 20 pieces are known to survive as recognizable proofs.
