Owner's Comments

Mintage: 43,690
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

1885 San Francisco dimes are rare in any grade, and become very rare in Mint State. This limited mintage was produced from a single die pair. Beware of potential 1885 Philadelphia dimes with an added S mintmark.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Deep Gray Blue Toning on Obverse, Lighter Golden Tone on Reverse
