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 off-metal sets.

In addition to the illustrated copper example, these were also struck in aluminum J1360/P1505. Fewer than 3 examples of either are confirmed.
