This is a scarce date and mint in Uncirculated condition despite a rather generous mintage. Choice coins are difficult to find and Mint State-64 is about as high as this date and mint come, as only a few are seen finer according to the PCGS <em>Population Report. </em>The surfaces are bathed in mint luster and both sides have a pale glaze of gold toning. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are nicer than what is commonly seen for this grade level. Fairly sharp too, as the curls over Liberty's ear show partial definition.
