Description & Analysis

In his Guide Book on Eagle and Indian Cents, Rick Snow notes that this date is rare in gem red condition, despite its high mintage. Poor storage over the years is the primary cause, and spotted or badly toned coins compete with improperly cleaned examples to comprise the greater part of those seen today.
