Obverse Dies: 16 Known
A common date in all grades including Mint State through MS64 but becomes difficult in MS65 and rare in MS66.
For 1887 San Francisco dimes, attributing obverse dies can be a difficult task for several reasons. First there are only minor differences in the date position due to the size of the digits in the date. For reverse dies, both the position and tilt of the Medium S mintmark plays an important role in reverse die identification.
Plate Coin: F-108, Prooflike with multi color toning.
