Description & Analysis

This is yet another issue that had a large mintage but is painfully elusive in fully struck, gem Mint State. Incomplete strikes and worn dies are the norm for 1892, and the coin presented here is superior to most.

Varieties for this date include one each of a repunched date and a doubled-die reverse, but both are minor and elicit little interest beyond variety specialists.
