Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Despite a large mintage similar to that of the Philadelphia issue of this year, most of the Denver coins remained in United States vaults until the great melts of the 1930s. The coins were converted into bars that were sent to Fort Knox. At one time the 1924-D was considered one of the prime rarities of the series. Starting in the 1960s, however, small numbers were found in European vaults. Most coins found have scattered bag marks, and they usually are found in grades ranging from MS 61 to MS 64. Gems are very rare with less than a dozen certified by NGC. Survivors show strong luster and average strikes, but many have worn dies around the peripheries due to a lack of quality control (perhaps caused by the enormous amount of coins that were minted).
