1861. PCGS graded Proof 63. Only 1,000 struck. A nice untoned example, silver gray in color with very sharp relief from the carefully made Proof dies. Reports are, the Proofs from the Philadelphia Mint were struck on the mint's medal press which gave a more even "squeeze" to the planchet as the dies hit them. Thereby was imparted all the finer detail from the die recesses. A scarce Proof from the openiing year of the American Civil War. Pop 31; 32 finer (PCGS # 7004) .
Estimated Value $4,200 - 4,400.
