David Hall: The 1934 Maryland was struck to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the landing of English settlers in Maryland. The original mintage was 25,015 coins and about 15,000 were sold at the initial offering price of $1.00. During 1935, the price was cut and the remainder of the coins were sold at the discounted price.

Today, Marylands are moderately scarce. Most specimens are mint state and the most frequently encountered grades are MS63 to MS66. Superb MS67 examples are rare. Marylands are comparable in rarity to the Lynchburg, Gettysburg, Albany, New Rochelle, and Antietam. Marylands are rarer than the Elgin, Roanoke, Norfolk, Wisconsin, and York, but not as rare as the Robinson or Connecticut.

The Maryland is a very flat design and strike can be an issue, especially on Calvert's nose. Most Marylands are relatively mark-free. And of course eye appeal is very important.
