Description & Analysis

Larry Briggs recent series update in the Coin Dealer Newsletter called this issue 'fairly easy to locate in all grades AG-XF, AU coins very scarce and Mint State coins downright rare.' The one-year type with the Rays reverse shows a curiosity of the issue, as the large O mintmark lies over the rays underneath.
