Obverse Dies: 3 Known
1858 San Francisco dimes are very scarce in any grade. In grades of VF or better, 1858-S dimes are more difficult to locate than either the 1856 or 1859 San Francisco dates. Extremely rare in Mint State as few examples are known.
Three obverse dies were paired with two reverses dies.
