Obverse Dies: 10 Known
Variety collectors will be limited to date position variations for 1858 dimes. Most dates slope downward, making the task of obverse die attribution difficult. 1858 dimes with die cracks are scarce since the limited mintage of 1,540,000 pieces appears to have been evenly produced across the nine business strike obverse dies.
Plate Coin: Fortin 110, An Incredible Dime With Superior Eye Appeal Beyond Its MS63 Assigned Grade
The 1858 Dime is a relatively common coin thanks to a large mintage and a healthy population of survivors (many in high grades). MS63 and MS64 examples are plentiful. Like most Seated Liberty Dimes of the 1850's, this date is very rare in MS66.
