A scarce date in full gem condition and this satiny and lustrous coin should please most collectors. The strike is soft on the bison's head and rump, as nearly always seen, and the peripheral lettering is indistinct. Clearly these dies had been used too long or the striking pressure was too low, or some combination. Rarely is this date found with a crisp, full strike. Rare at this grade level and desirable.
