Description & Analysis

A slowly recovering economy prompted higher production at the Philadelphia Mint over the previous year. This issue is plentiful across all grades, due largely to the practice of saving rolls of new coins that was picking up steam at the time.

An extremely minor doubled-die obverse (DDO) variety is known, but this is of no real interest to collectors.
