Description & Analysis

This issue was widely hoarded, as were most of the wartime composition coins. Gems are plentiful, though these are seldom found fully struck. Most pieces were coined from worn dies having rough, eroded surfaces.

Repunched mintmark varieties are numerous, all of them being quite minor and of little interest.
