Here is another fantastic near gem proof with exceptional eye appeal and deep cameo contrast. Only 14 to 16 are known today from a mintage of 50 or so in proof. Many were likely spent or melted as the Civil War and monetary upheavals continued well after the conflict ended. The contrast between the frosted devices and the mirror fields is incredible. A few trivial scuffs stand out from the reflective fields, but minimal hairlines distract the eye and the quality is rock solid for this American classic. An imposing example of this rare and seldom seen proof issue.
