Description & Analysis

This high mintage date is common in all grades, though fully red gems still constitute a minority of survivors. On the plus side, this date seems to have been better made than the issues immediately preceding, with sharp strikes being more common.

There is a rich array of date-punching varieties of interest to the series specialist.
