Owner's Comments

Mintage: 320,000
Obverse Dies: 2 Known

Two sets of obverse and reverse dies for 1871 San Francisco coinage producing three separate die pairing varieties. A scarce date that is more difficult to locate than its mintage would suggest. Rare and underrated in Mint State.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Repunched 18, Well Struck For 1871-S, Silver Centers with Radial Brown Toning
