A. Proof. F.C.C. Boyd - World's Greatest Collection - Numismatic Gallery 5/1945:411 - Christian Allenburger - B. Max Mehl 3/1948:1936 - R.E. Cox - Stack's 4/1962:1875. Walter Breen believed these descriptions were all of the same coin, but the first two appearances were not plated, and the catalogers of the Cox specimen report that the consignor was told it was the Allenburger coin, but they could not verify that claim. The plate of the Cox coin shows an unsightly planchet void near the eagle's head. Considering the painstaking process employed in striking proofs of this era, it seems unlikely that the coiners would select a damaged planchet to strike a proof coin. The Cox specimen may be a prooflike business-strike.
B. Proof. An unverified example that Breen reported in the Philip G. Straus Collection, circa 1951. The coin remains unseen since that time and is likely one of the four listed above.
