Description & Analysis

The rarity of this issue across all grades is consistent with its low mintage. Just a single die pair is known, and it's likely that the entire output was produced in a single day.

A new mintmark punch debuted with this date and would be used through the end of the series, though it shared this role with at least one other punch for some dates. This S is tall and well formed.
