This specimen was part of lot 26747 in Heritage sale 3022 (New York, January 2013), which sold for $470. The catalog description[2] noted, "Elizabeth II Six Piece Prooflike Set 1954, Cent to Dollar. Most cameo. A difficult set to find today." This type, struck at Ottawa 1953-64, is common in all grades. The use of chrome plated dies gave a polished appearance to the coins which in turn magnified the detractive effects of bagmarks.

Recorded mintage: 22,181,760.

Specification: 3.24 g, bronze, 19.1 mm diameter, plain edge.

Catalog reference: KM 49.
