Description & Analysis

This issue enjoyed a large mintage, and examples are fairly plentiful across all grades through MS 64. Most were well struck in all central details, though weakness within the border denticles is frequently seen for this coin type in general.

A minor repunched date variety is known, but this is of interest only to specialists.
