Description & Analysis

This issue was widely hoarded by the roll, so Mint State pieces remain quite common. Their quality is all over the board, so collectors should be patient in selecting just the right one. The coin illustrated is exceptional in displaying both good luster and a sharp strike. Most will display either one or the other.

A few repunched mintmark varieties are known for either of two different S punches used this year.
