With a substantial original mintage of 9.7 million coins, this New Orleans Mint issue is easily available at lower grades of Mint State, up to and including MS-66. Beyond that premium Gem level, however, this so-called common date dollar becomes very scarce. This brilliant example is fully struck and displays a rich satiny sheen, with scintillating cartwheel luster in the fields. It is impressively preserved and the surfaces are free of distractions.
