Description & Analysis

Writing in 1988, Dean Howe had this to say: 'A clear distinction is made between the abundance of this date and the scarcity of coins displaying full bands. It appears that a combination of insufficient striking pressure and worn dies contributed to the consistent mediocre strike.'
