Notes:
This date is only slightly more common than the 1892, nearly twice as rare as the 1891-CC, and fifty percent more common than the 1893-CC.  The most frequently encountered Uncirculated grade is MS-63, followed by MS-62, then MS-64.  Gems are scarce but available and a mere handful of coins exists above the MS-65 level.  The finest examples graded by PCGS are 2 MS-67's, 8 MS-65 Prooflikes, and 2 MS-65 Deep Mirror Prooflikes.
