David Akers (1975/88): I would estimate that no more than half the original mintage of 20 pieces still exists in unimpaired state. Impaired proofs are readily identifiable from business strikes by the significant difference in the position of the date. On the proofs, the date is high in the field and the 5 nearly touches the bust. On the business strikes, however, the date is lower in the field and the 5 is distant from the bust. The Ullmer coin and the Wolfson coin were both erroneously catalogued as proofs when they were, in fact, business strikes.
