Boldly lustrous and sharply struck with a pale golden sheen throughout. A rarity in Mint State despite its mintage of 1.241 million pieces; most of the mintage saw heavy circulation in the San Francisco area. Specimens up to and including AU are occasionally available for a price, and at Uncirculated, the value of the date skyrockets. The <em>Guide Book </em>gives a MS-60 value of $3,800, and the value spirals upward from there. Choice for the grade.
