Owner's Comments

Mintage: 95,000
Obverse Dies: 2 Known

1853 No Arrows dimes are scarce in circulated grades but much more available in Mint State grades than their low mintage would suggest. Two obverse dies and a single reverse die are currently known. Ahwash indicates that 55,000 pieces were delivered on February 17 while the remaining 40,000 pieces when issued on February 19, 1853 before conversion to the lower silver weight planchets.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Ahwash 1, Even Light Bronze Tone on Both Obverse and Reverse, Strike Consistent With Grade
