Owner's Comments

Mintage: 7,700,000
Obverse Dies: 7 Known With Type I Reverse and 14 Known With Type II Reverse

1877 Carson City dimes are common in all grades including Mint State. The Type I Reverse is slightly scarcer than Type II Reverse examples, however the Type I reverse is still fairly common and straightforward to locate. The number of known obverse dies paired with Type II reverse dies will continue to increase as more research occurs.

Plate Coin: Type II Reverse, Fortin 109, The 77 digit in the date are lightly repunched. A wonderful Carson City Seated dime that has vibrant luster and a bold strike. The tan-gold and cream-gray fields and devices are framed by rich peripheral sea-green patina. What a lovely additional to the PCGS registry set after years of waiting for a beautifully toned example.
