Description & Analysis

The 1913 is the first of three consecutive low-mintage Philadelphia Mint issues. In this case, the mintage was a mere 188,000 coins. Survivors are typically found in well-worn grades such as Good or Very Good, or in low-level Mint State grades from MS60 to MS63. Higher-grade circulated coins and high-grade Mint State pieces are conditional rarities.
