The 1896-O is fairly consistent in lacking a decent strike, having poor luster and being horribly abraded and bagmarked. When found with an exception to any of those three, you have a tough coin. Uncirculated coins are rare and, due to the qualities noted, very rare at choice (MS63) or above. Prooflikes are extremely rare.

The 1896-O is fairly consistent in lacking a decent strike, having poor luster and being horribly abraded and bagmarked. When found with an exception to any of those three, you have a tough coin. Uncirculated coins are rare and, due to the qualities noted, very rare at choice (MS63) or above. Prooflikes are extremely rare. The 1896-O is a key in both an uncirculated set and a prooflike set.
