Owner's Comments

Mintage: 260,000
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

A single die pair was used for 1868 San Francisco coinage. This date is scarce in the lower circulated grade and becomes very scarce in EF-AU, rare in Mint State and presently underrated in CoinValues.

For years a separate doubled reverse die was listed by Breen and Greer. In 2005, research revealed that the doubled reverse die was caused by strike doubling and not die doubling via a shifted second hubbing of the reverse die.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Fully Struck and Lustrous, High End PQ Is Best Way To Describe This Rare Date In Mint State. Purchased in an ICG MS65 Holder.
