Owner's Comments

Mintage: 50,000
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

The 1870 San Francisco date is very scarce in all grades and becomes rare in EF or better. In Mint State, the release of a small hoard allows some availability, though the date is still considered rare.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Well Struck, Bold Luster with Light Golden Toning
