Obverse Dies: 10 Known
1882 Philadelphia dimes are often seen with flat heads and weak reverse denominations. The strike weakness may be a function of the hubbing quality of the working dies employed for this date''s coinage. Additional research is required for the 1882 date to identify all of the obverse dies employed by the Philadelphia mint.
Plate Coin: Fortin 105, Misplaced Digit In Base, Repunched 2, Frosty Example With Rose-Violet, Amber and Sea-Green Toning On The Obverse and More Intense Russet On The Left Reverse Border, Simply A Gem Example.
