Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: This is the first year in which the Mint struck Susan B. Anthony Dollars. Most coins are common and can still be found in circulation although bank tellers, or store clerks and most of the public set these aside almost every time they see them in circulation. The Federal Reserve still has plenty of them but most banks don't want the coins. Only examples in MS66 condition or higher seem to be scarce. In MS67 condition they become very scarce with possibly no more than 500 examples in existence.
