Owner's Comments

Mintage: 564,969
Obverse Dies: 3 Known

Three obverse and reverse dies were used to strike 1884 San Francisco dimes. This date is scarce across all circulated grades, becoming very scarce in Mint State.

Plate Coin: Fortin 105, New variety die pairing between Obverse 1 and Reverse C. Specimen exhibits even luster and traces of obverse toning.
