Obverse Dies: 10 Known Only With Type II Reverse
The 1877 San Francisco date is difficult to locate in nice EF-AU condition. Greer considers the 1877-S date as "One of the most challenging common dates to locate". It has been speculated that significant melting of this coinage took place to supply silver for minting of Morgan silver dollars in 1878.
All 1877 San Francisco examples will be found with a Type II reverse.
