101 Small S: same mintmark used from 1932-1940. (Breen-4306)
102 Large S: same mintmark used from 1942-1944. Midsection is thicker and serifs sharper than small S. (Breen-4307)
Lowest of the 1941 mintages and worth nearly double its Philadelphia and Denver counterparts in MS65. In 1991 this date was listed at $85 in the Redbook and thus is a good deal at today’s more reasonable levels.
