Description & Analysis

This issue typically is lumped together with very common dates such as 1843 and 1845, yet it is slightly more scarce across all grades. This is reflected pricewise mostly at the Mint State level.

A minor repunched date variety is known in numerals 18 are duplicated, but this has been slow to catch on with anyone but series specialists.
