Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The head of Liberty was slightly modified in 1832. The relief is higher and, therefore wear shows more quickly. Due to this higher relief, it is also much more difficult to obtain fully struck specimens of 1832, 1833, or 1834 than it is of the first three years of this type. Choice uncirculated specimens of this date are occasionally available, but even these are usually not as sharply struck as are those of 1829, 1830 or 1831.
