Boy, I couldn't imagine using these on a daily basis... Really neat piece though. Has a nice, full luster despite it's size, and even has cute little die-breaks on the obverse
Are there any market for these guys?

Nice coin, I think in this condition they transact in the 10 plus range.

Very nice, could you post a close up of the '9' in the date, it looks like it is repunched. Could be an overdate.

Here's some close-ups. Is this coin known for having an overdate?
Thanks for looking

I don't know if there is any specific confirmations of an over date, but if you look at the top left corner of the '9' it looks at if there is a bit of a trace of another number. It looks like it could be a '7', perhaps one of the workers started repunching the dies and accidentally made the date to condensed, or maybe it wasn't centered properly and they had to either polish the date and start over, or repunched over their mistake and then polish out the remaining details of their mess up but accidentally left a bit behind.

This is just a guess that seems like likely to me, given that there is a '7' in the date.
