Description & Analysis

Though World War I had ended in 1918 the United States economy remained on overdrive well into 1920. This is clearly reflected in the large mintages of coins for that period.

This issue is fairly common in well worn condition, with XF and AU coins being only slightly scarce. Mint State survivors are likewise common in the lesser grades. Gems are seldom fully struck, but there are enough coins certified as MS-65 that advanced collectors will have no trouble locating a desirable example.
