Description & Analysis

With a generous mintage, examples of this date are plentiful across all grades through MS 65. The usual caveats apply with respect to seeking a coin that is well struck and displays pleasing luster.

Varieties include a few repunched dates and a pair of misplaced date obverses having remnants of numerals hidden within the denticles below the date.
