Heritage 3/03, Stewart Blay 4/04

Expert Comments

David Akers: This is a distinctly underrated issue, at least in comparison to the Philadelphia Mint issues of 1906 and 1907 with which it is generally associated as far as rarity is concerned. Actually, the 1908 is considerably more rare than either of those two dates when one considers all available grades, although in Gem condition, they are rather similar.
