Cert #98811 10005073
Coin Number 129
This is one of 30 Proofs struck on February 20 of 1871, and one of the finer examples of some 10 to 12 known. The deep cameo contrast is amazing to behold, with the depth of the mirror fields seemingly endless while the frost on the devices is piled high in nearly three dimensional perfection. The surfaces show only a few thin lines, but nothing too distracting. This coin came from the Ed Trompeter Collection long ago. A glorious, boldly contrasted Proof!
