Description & Analysis

Probably because of where the 1913-D falls in the series, that is, toward the end, it was saved in greater numbers than one might imagine from a casual glance at the mintage of only 534,000 pieces. It was even hoarded as a low mintage issue in Good-VG condition. That being said, the availability of the '13-D drops off precipitously above the MS64 level. Gem and better pieces are no more available than other, better known issues.
