??A Proof 2017-S Native American manganese-brass clad dollar. The reverse of the dollar shows a profiled likeness of Sequoyah writing “Sequoyah from Cherokee Nation” in syllabary along the border of the design.

The two plastic lenses containing the Proof coins are in a storage carton depicting the Washington Monument at sunrise.
