Owner's Comments

Mintage: 190,000
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

A single die pair was employed for 1872 San Francisco coinge. This is a difficult date to locate in all circulated grades and consistent in scarcity with the 1871 San Francisco date. 1872 San Francisco Seated dimes are rare in Mint State condition as demonstrated by the low NGC and PCGS populations.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Hints of Lilac and Gold Patina Over Problem Free Surfaces, Bold Strike, Obverse Die Cracks
