Owner's Comments

Mintage: 15,310,600
Obverse Dies: 29 Known

A common date in all grades including Mint State.

The Double Die Obverse and the MPD Obverse have become popular varieties for 1891 dated dimes. Since the reverse dies appear to consistently cracked on the left side of the wreath, examples with retained die cuds between 9:00 and 12:00 can be found with patient searching.

Plate Coin: Fortin 129, Lustrous Obverse, Rose Toned Reverse
