Description & Analysis

Although more than 2.2 million pieces were struck of this final year Seated Liberty issue, relatively few were set aside for posterity and collecting by mintmark was still not an established practice. Of perhaps 200 pieces known to survive in the various Mint State grades, roughly ten percent qualifies as a Gem.
