Owner's Comments

Mintage: 14,460
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

A difficult and rare date for business strike. Proof examples are more available than business strikes. A single pair of Philadelphia dies were used to strike both the proof and business strike coinage.

Plate Coin: Fortin F-101a, Peripheral Toning in Mottled Cobalt-Blue Shades, Well Struck Obverse. Single Die Pair for Year.
