The date on this one is almost gone but the overall wear of this coin  is minimal. Was there greased filled strikes at this time or maybe perhaps this was  a weak strike on the date only??

On a side note .... I really like the condition of this coin!

Thanks for looking

A weak strike would affect more than the date. Looks like a partially grease filled die.

That was my initial thought Greenstang but wasn't sure. On another subject this year does carry a pretty good premium for EF and better (my opinion is EF40 to AU50)  but would the date depreciate the potential grade?
