According to PCGS this is a pop 1

There were no other proofs at PCGS of this date
I also checked NGC as well and saw no proofs of this date .

There was nothing noted in numismaster .

Nothing noted in coinarchives pro…

Nothing in auction history .

Did PCGS make a mistake ?

What gives here ?


I manage money. I earn money. I save money .
I give away money. I collect money.
I don’t love money . I do love the Lord God.

    How does it look to you?

    Proofs generally exist from 19th c., but they seem rare across the board. If they exist, they truly exist as proofs or select examples to be kept by officials, the mint, etc... I've seen Saxon minor coins from that year sell as proofs. I think it's often debatable whether they're early strike or true proofs. It's hard to get a clear read on that example from the photos.

    The fact that PCGS doesn't have any others isn't unusual. The lack of auction history in coinarchives pro is more meaningful.

    It looks like a normal business strike and not a proof to me. Prooflike business strikes are common for this era. This is not an unusual occurrence to find with PCGS unfortunately.

    Agree, looks like a business strike and I’m sure PCGS will say its a “mechanical” error.

    Yes, I suspect it's business strike. It doesn't have the squared edges of a proof.
