Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This issue was one of the favorites of the late collector Robert Kruthoffer. In the 1970s he recognized the rarity of the issue. Most of the known examples are circulated or in the lower range of Mint State. Very few have been graded at the Gem level and prices escalate rapidly for high grade examples.
