Obverse Dies: 12 Known
1891 San Francisco dimes are common in all circulated grades and a slightly better date in Mint State. The Medium S mintmark
appears more often than the Small S mintmark.
Research has identified twelve obverse dies and thirteen reverse dies. Multiple die pairing are available and present a collecting challenge if one wishes to assemble a complete set of date and mintmark position varieties.
