David Akers (1975/88): Proof-like business strikes are not nearly as decptive of this date as are the first strikes of many other dates. However, to aid those who might not be familiar with the appearance of a proof, I will point out that on all the proofs I have seen, RICA of AMERICA is distinctly recut, whereas it is not on the business strikes. Also, on the reverse of the proofs, there is a faint trace of an outline around the dots of the tassels at the top of the wreath, while I have not noticed such an outline on any business strkes. As I have indicated, howver, business strikes of this date are rarely all that deceptive and they lack the depth of field and "orange peel" surface that are common to a true proof.
