Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: At one time this issue was quite scarce in all levels of Mint State. Starting in the 1980s, however, rather sizeable groups of the date surfaced. Examples were found in the vaults of South American and European banks. Gem examples can be found with a bit of patience and several rather superb coins are known. I have seen at least 4 or 5 coins that would grade superb MS 67. The Eliasberg example is probably the finest known specimen. Coins of the issue are well struck with green-gold colorations.
