Description & Analysis

Many rolls were saved of this issue, and it remains common today in Mint State. A satisfying portion of these survivors are fully red gems, some of them in truly outstanding condition.

Once again the Mint failed to furnish numeral 7 with the long tail it deserved. This error was finally corrected with 1947's production.
