Owner's Comments

Mintage: 839,000
Obverse Dies: 5 Known

Four obverse and reverse dies have been identified for 1849 business strike coinage while a separate obverse die is known for proof coinage.

In Mint State, this date is very scarce and will prove to be difficult to locate.

Plate Coin: Fortin 105, Ahwash 4, A Well Struck White Coin With Lustrous Surfaces
