Description & Analysis

From a small mintage of 4,000 pieces. scarce surviving examples are mostly well-circulated. In fact, only one uncirculated example has ever been certified, an amazing gem MS65 from Garrett Collection. Curiously, all known examples have an "earring," a small, round incuse mark on Liberty's ear lobe.
