Brilliant and lustrous with bold cartwheel activity on both sides. From a mintage for the date of 952,000 pieces, the majority of which saw heavy commercial duty in and around the city of origin. Today's Mint State population is tiny compared to the output for the date, and today's collectors recognize that fact. Nice examples of the date are always sought, and this Choice Mint State specimen should draw a lot of attention. The final year of two in the series with obverse mintmarks.
