Expert Comments

David Hall

The 1924-D is scarce in circulated grades and very scarce in mint state. Like the other pre-1930 Denver Mint issues, the 1924-D is rare in Gem condition, though not as rare as the S Mints of the era. This issue is usually, but not always, well struck. There are some examples with weak Buffalo horn detail. Luster is of the frosty iridescent type.
