David Hall:

The 1929 is not quite as common in circulated grades as the dates in the 1935-1938 era, but it is common nonetheless. It is semi-common in mint state, and somewhat scarce in Gem condition...it's scarcer than the issues of the 1930s that is. The strike is usually bold and the luster can be quite frosty and attractive.
