Owner's Comments

Duckor. This is a very nice coin with original toning and good strike. It was a duplicate sold to me when Steve Duckor upgraded the coin with another for his registry set. The date is more difficult than most would think, but the population reports are very helpful showing the numbers and relative rarities of all the dates in the series. We are proud to hold this coin in our set with connections to the top set ever assembled by Dr and Mrs Duckor. The 1906 is more common than the 1905, particularly in lower grades. At the gem level and above, the 1906 is not seen very frequently.

Expert Comments

David Akers: This issue is moderately scarce but certainly not rare in mint state; in fact, below the Gem level, specimens are available with regularity. However, full Gems...are quite rare, although not nearly as much so as the elusive and underrated P Mint issues from 1901-1905.
