Although these are described as regular die trial pieces in the standard references, it is more likely that the off-metal 'trials' of this year were deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete sets.

These were also struck in copper J1268/P1410 and aluminum J1269/P1411 as illustrated above.

Only 3 or 4 are known in either metal.
