Description & Analysis

This is a very scarce issue that is rare in grades XF and AU and entirely unknown in Mint State.

Larry Briggs identified two die marriages, each representing single pairings of two obverses and two reverses. Both reverse dies featured the Large S mintmark in use since 1855.
