Owner's Comments

Mintage: 11,461,150
Obverse Dies: 16 Known With Type I Reverse and 5 Known With Type II Reverse

Starting in 1876, two different reverse hub styles appeared and were entitled Type I and Type II by Kam Ahwash. The different reverse hubs were used by all mints from 1876 through 1878, except for the 1877 coinage produced at the San Francisco mint.

1876 Philadelphia coinage is common in all grades. The Type I reverse is very common while the Type II reverse is considered
scarce.
