Even in lower more heavily circulated grades this coin has a value of over $60

Semi Key Dates

Unlike a lot of the other coin series from this era and earlier, it’s not really as much the mintage numbers that drive certain coins to being considered semi key dates, but their survival in the higher grades. What is similar, however, is that they are all either Denver or San Francisco coins. Just like the Lincoln Cent, not many were minted, and these early coins were used heavily, especially during the depression era in an area of the country that was farther away and didn’t see as much coinage from the eastern part of the US which would have brought the Philadelphia issues in to mix with the Denver and San Francisco coins.
