Description & Analysis

Throughout the year, the Mint in Philadelphia produced a total of 251,015 business strikes of this date, and enough examples remain in circulated grades that nearly any collector can obtain one with little difficulty. Quite a number of Mint State examples are also known today, but nearly every one of those grades only MS60 or MS61.
