Description & Analysis

Just 193,600 examples of this issue were originally struck in Denver, and survivors in all Mint State grades are elusive. There was a hoard of several hundred examples located in Europe in 1979, according to David Akers (Walter Breen suggested the total was 283 coins and that these were found in 1980). Akers suggested that a number of Gem quality examples were known to him, and indicated that the best of the lot is probably the former Norweb Collection coin.
