Description & Analysis

Mint State example of average quality are fairly available, and most will reveal some weakness in the hair at Liberty's forehead and at the corresponding position on the reverse (right side of shield and eagle's left claw and the arrow feathers).

Circulated coins are rarest in the popular mid-grades of F and VF. Pieces grading XF and AU are somewhat more available, but often they have been cleaned at some time.

There are no varieties for this issue other than the typical slight variations in mintmark position.
