Description & Analysis

The 1931-D is among the most difficult date in the 1930s with full band details. It is a low mintage issue of just 1.26 million coins, there being little need for a continued infusion of new coinage during the depths of the Great Depression. While well struck in general, difficulty is sometimes encountered locating a high-grade piece that is fully defined on both the central and lower bands.
