Description & Analysis

Despite a generous mintage, this issue is very elusive with both good luster and a sharp strike. Most dies were used too long and became eroded and indistinct. Also seen is a general softness of strike even on those pieces from fresh dies. Understandably, coins having either 5FS or 6FS are very rare.
