Seller's Note/ This coin is from a huge hoard found way back in 2011 (NRC had 500 to begin with all those years ago) and we see them everywhere at coin shows and on line. When they first appeared on the market, the original provider told me that it was his suspicion that because of the poor strikes that they had all been recalled for melting down and re-striking. This is a typical example.
