    I agree that the date is too large. It also appears that they are adding detail to Liberty's hair...don't like it. Stay with the design. Do not try to improve/enhance it.

    The obverse is based on the 1921 design, but made into a low-relief coin, so the hair will not look like the 1922-35 coins and the date is thicker. The 0 in the date needs to be moved a touch to the right and made round, though.

    Of course that's my point - the United States Mint has no business being concerned about any "aftermarket". They're not making Beanie Babies. I realize that I'm tilting at windmills, but their job is to market a design, take the orders, then mint them. If collectors are asleep and the demand later exceeds the supply, that's the natural outcome for the market. If the collectors got all they want and the demand is never more than that, well... that's their job! If they market a design, and I want one at the exact time it goes on sale but I can't get it, then they're an abject failure. Their job is not to produce something that I cannot get from them when they say I can.

    And if the Mint is concerned about the aftermarket, that would beg the question of “why.”

    Because that would be being smart. If you consistently put out things that fall in price you either have to lower your prices or watch sales decline. It would be foolish not to be considering it in strategy

    They've been putting out clad proof sets that fall in price for the last fifty years.

    And you proved the point. Their prices are minuscule and their sales are pathetic
