Owner's Comments

An attractively toned premium gem, here is an issue not found in the Eliasberg Collection. The same can be said of all the P-mint business strikes from 1892 through 1915. Eliasberg collected only the proofs for those years in which proofs were made. The practice of considering proofs and business strikes to be separate issues evolved after the famed Eliasberg Collection was completed. Heritage, 2006 FUN Signature Sale
