Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This is one of the most common dates of the entire series and is available in grades up to and including MS 67. Only one coin has been graded MS 68 by NGC. As most examples are boldly struck and show radiant luster, this date is often chosen to represent the type if just a single coin is desired. Many survived in overseas hoards. However, one particular group of coins was handled by Manfra, Tordella & Brooks during 1981 and 1982. The hoard contained more than 1,000 pieces and was rumored to be from the Brand Estate. I personally purchased quite a few of the coins at the time and have fond memories of seeing the coins in the original cigar boxes in which they had been stored. Minor positional variations are known for the mintmark and peripheral die cracks are common on this date.
