An untoned Superb Gem with excellent luster and surfaces that are free from even the tiny luster grazes. The mirrored fields contrast nicely with the frosted devices. Struck with meticulous care by the dies, thereby confirming the Superb grade which NGC has assigned. Mintage in 1892 increased somewhat with the introduction of the new Barber design, 1,245 proofs were struck. Perhaps 300 to 400 more proofs were sold that would have been the case, but by 1893, levels returned to normal once the novelty had worn off.
