Mintage: 817 Proof: 20

Type: 5e, 6e

Recommended Grade: XF45

Business strikes have a weak outline to the motto scroll. The reader may wonder why token business strikes were produced for dates such as 1873 and 1875-77. The die preparation was hardly worth the effort for very low mintages. One reason was that the Mint Director did not want to have speculation over the proof issues.

Despite the extremely low mintage, both 'rounded' and 'bulging' bun varieties exist.
