Don Willis: Mintage for the 15 stars is estimated at 569 while mintage for the 16 stars variety is estimated at 365. However, both seem to appear equally as often at auction. There was only a single AU58 for several years, which I owned multiple times. Another AU58 appeared on the market in 2008 which was sold by Heritage. There are at most a hand full of mint state examples. This is one of the most beautiful and short lived designs.
