Owner's Comments

Mintage: 9,070,000 (both In and Below Wreath Varieties)
Obverse Dies: 2 In Wreath and 13 Below Wreath Known

1875 San Francisco dimes will be found with the S mintmark "In the Wreath" and "Below the Wreath". A common date and variety in all grades. The Below Wreath variety is very common and more available than the In Wreath variety. Some Below Wreath dimes will be found with a Micro S mintmark. Additional variety research is necessary for 1875-S Below Wreath dimes.
