Although these are described as regular die trial pieces in the standard references, the off-metal 'trials' of this year were deliberately made for sale to collectors.

Examples exist in the following combinations:

Copper J1167/P1309 with fewer than a half dozen known.

Aluminum J1168/P1310 with only 3 or fewer believed to exist.

Nickel J1169/P1311 which is unique.
