Although described as regular dies trial pieces, these were deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets.



Examples were struck as follows:

Copper J1346. This is unlisted in Pollock. If any do exist, they are probably masquerading as a regular issue proof.

Nickel J1346A/P1491 with only the Stacks 1/87, Heritage 7/22 example confirmed and illustrated below courtesy of NGC.



We believe this piece to be a mint error struck either on a planchet intended for a foreign coin or on a nickel 3 cent planchet. For more on this, click here.

Aluminum J1347/P1490 with only the Brenner-Brand (journal #92500:1398) and Newcomer examples believed to exist.

Later pedigrees for these are Lauder-Doyle 12/83, Heritage 3/03, Simpson-Heritage 9/20 - PCGS64 which is illustrated above and Heritage 2/16 - PCGS63.
