Description & Analysis

The vast majority of survivors from this Civil War-era issue, with an original mintage of only 10,995 pieces, were either hoarded, melted or exported, and as a result most survivors, when seen, are apt to be well worn VF or XF representatives. Mint State survivors are almost unobtainable.
