Description & Analysis

The mintage figure for calendar year 1800 likely included some dated 1799 and even more dated 1798. Such is the nature of the early U. S. Mint.

Some 17 non-overdate die marriages are known for 1800. Of these, the following are considered rare to varying degrees: S-198, -201, -210, NC-3 and NC-4. S-212 (photos) is only slightly scarce.
