For low states of conservation, I chose to put an estimate that is close to or equal to the average value called '' by weight '', this mean that the coin no longer has value as a collector's item but simply its weight in silver. For lower states that contain '' --- '' this indicates that the coin is worth its weight in silver, because it is useless to put the same estimate two or three times in a row for the first states of conservation.

The estimates go up very quickly from one state to another because, for example, find the years 1909 and 1910 in AU 58 state is very easy, but from MS 63 it becomes much more complicated to find.

Normally, the 1914 C is rarer than the 1914. However, I always notice, that one proposes much more the 1914 C on sale, that the 1914. That which makes that I balanced the estimates, because finally, the 1914 is very easily and even more easily to find than 1914.

From 1915 the coins in SMS 63 state become very common. More difficult to find a real MS 65 though.
