Item Description:
Low mintage of only 33,183 pieces. The present example displays wonderful eye appeal despite having been lightly circulated. Original luster remains tight against the peripheral stars and lettering. A thin die crack stretches from the lower obverse rim, through the date, and up into the portrait, while another shoots out from star 8. Overall a lovely example.
