1877 Very Choice Brilliant Proof. 1 and 8 show signs of repunching on this frosted-cameo near Gem,...1877 Very Choice Brilliant Proof. 1 and 8 show signs of repunching on this frosted-cameo near Gem, displaying Type II obverse and reverse. This coin's microscopically exact devices and mirror fields boast gleaming silver beauty boldly enhanced by a subtle glow of clear rose-gold. The late Walter Breen believed that this Proof date was substantially rarer than the reported mintage of only 510 pieces.

Ex Herman Halpern Collection (Stack's, May 1999, lot 2602).
