Mintage: 1,755,000
Obverse Dies: 6 Known

Six obverse dies and eight reverse dies are known for the 1845 date. Obverse 5, the 1845/1845 repunched date obverse die, is paired with a second reverse die. During the initial pairing, the dies appear to clash based on the diagnostics from the plate coin. Obverse die clash marks are visible to the left of Liberty's left hand and immediately right of Liberty's right elbow. On the reverse, die clashing is easily seen behind the letters ME in DIME.
