Description & Analysis

Glancing at the mintage of this third year issue, over 14 million pieces, one would tend to underestimate the scarcity of Gems with a full head designation. While we find Cline's estimate that only five percent of Mint State survivors are sharp enough to meet this criteria to be a bit on the low side, it is nevertheless surprisingly difficult, especially following the striking excellence of the 1917.
