Description & Analysis

Bruce Fox discussed the elusive nature of this issue in top-quality: 'As with so many other Denver issues, this date has a full range of strikes and doesn't exhibit much care during handling at the mint. Finding the full strike with minimum abrasions is a difficult task. Fully struck gems command premiums.'
