Owner's Comments

Mintage: 206,524
Obverse Dies: 2 Known

1886 San Francisco coinage is scarce in circulated grades, becoming rare in Mint State. It is slightly more difficult to locate in circulated grades than 1884 San Francisco examples.

One of the two obverse dies is rarely seen and should bring a substantial premium would located. This rare 1886-S variety has a level date that is positioned further right than the commonly seen 1886-S obverse.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Fully lustrous, toned with variegated deep rose and steel-blues that are lighter on the reverse, sharply struck throughout.
