Description & Analysis

A prized rarity in all grades, as might be expected from a mintage of 1,132 pieces, this in an era when no numismatic attention was paid to business strikes of any denomination. In fact, the figure is so low that only the 1875 is lower among Philadelphia Mint issues of this design
