Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Most examples seen for the date are well struck with excellent luster. The date is among the better produced for the series, and is ideal for Type coin collectors as well. As is the common theme for the late date coins from the series, a small number have been graded MS 66, but none have achieved the MS 67 designation (11/12).
