Owner's Comments

Mintage: 3,196,116
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.

Plate Coin: Fortin 116, A Bold Strike Throughout With Magnificent Luster, So Close to MS67
