QUERIES: FIRST CAMEO PROOF, PITT CLUB

Paul Sherry writes: "I was reading Dick Johnson’s article “Canadian
Mint Advances Minting Technology”, in particular the statement
“innovations first appeared on medals.  If it was satisfactory on
a medal it could then be applied to a coin. We have proof coins
today because a proof surface was first applied to a medal (Pitt
Club Medal, London, 1762).”

"Does anyone know what year the cameo proof first appeared?
Also, and any information on the Pitt Club would also be
appreciated."
