  1. The scale of the chart is limited to 34,000,000 coins to allow the lowest quantity issues to be displayed, while accurately charting most other issues. The Eisenhower Dollar production in Philadelphia and Denver exceeded the 34 million mark seven times, but actual mintages above that total would seem to be immaterial. Data for those seven issues is truncated to facilitate better chart detail of lower mintage issues.
  2. 1973-P & -D Eisenhower Dollars were issued only in 1,767,691 uncirculated mint sets. Actual coin production was more than that, but all coins not used in the sets were destroyed by the mint.
