Description & Analysis

The novelty of this denomination's initial year and a sizeable mintage of 215,000 pieces resulted in a few hundred coins being spared from circulation and thus available to the 21st century collector. The vast majority of these Mint State survivors, however, are weakly struck MS60-62 examples. Only occasionally are we fortunate enough to offer a '49-O nice enough to warrant an MS64 designation and Gems are extremely rare.
