Susan B Anthony Dollar 1979 AU Set of 3 Coins Sealed
Set of 3 uncirculated sealed Anthony dollars in envelope dated 1979. Though it is round, The Susan B. Anthony dollar may appear 11-sided, due to an 11-sided rim bordering the edge of both sides. The original design called for the coin itself to be an 11-sided hexadecagon, but vending machine could only accommodate round coins. Because of their similar size and color, it was very easy to mistake the coin for a quarter. The US dollar coin was released July 2, 1979.
