Cuba (struck in Philadelphia), proof 1 peso, 1915, encapsulated PCGS PR-64CAM. KM-16. Featuring the bust of José Martí, and one of only 140 pieces made in Proof, issued at par with the US dollar and in fact designed by US Mint Chief Engraver Charles Barber (whose name is well known for US coins), this specimen is a lovely, rich, auburn color with no flaws visible to the naked eye. It is interesting to note that these 1-peso coins were often used in wedding ceremonies as symbolic dowries.
