Description & Analysis

This issue is a bit scarcer than Philadelphia Mint halves of comparable mintage. Circulated examples grading F and higher are in short supply, as are Mint State pieces. Most seen are well but not fully struck, and gems are genuinely rare.

The only variety known is a minor repunched date that shows an extra outline to the upper curve of numeral 3.
