||1861 H10C PR65 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Deep blue and gray toning confirms the originality of this Civil War Gem. The proof 1861 is actually scarcer than its much lower mintage proof 1862 successor, since many 1861 proof sets were eventually melted by the Mint. Census: 24 in 65 (1 in 65 S), 17 finer (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $7.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
