General Market Notes

There are no extreme rarities in the series and pieces in decent grades of XF or better are readily available. The closest to a key coin for the series is the 1913 issue with a mintage of only 267,700.

For a potential sleeper, look at the 1908 issue with a small mintage of 300,000 and the added fact that it is the first year of issue for the series.
