Owner's Comments

Mintage: 35,480
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

In the lower circulated grades, the 1872 Carson City dime is more available than its 1871, 1873 With Arrows and 1874 counterparts. However in grades of EF or better, the 1872 Carson City dime becomes extremely rare. This date is excessively rare in Mint State.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Conditionally Rare, Moderate Layer Of Original Gray Toning on Both Obverse and Reverse
