Although these are described as regular die trial pieces in the standard references, it is more likely they were deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets.

Examples were struck as follows:

Copper J1248/P1390.

Aluminum J1249/P1391.

Only 3 or fewer of each are believed to exist.
