Description & Analysis

This large mintage resulted in considerable overuse of the dies, and blurry pieces are common. The example shown was coined from reasonably fresh dies, but a slight incompleteness of strike at its centers has left unstruck planchet roughness at its centers. Enough Mint State pieces survive that a suitable coin will not be that hard to find.
