Owner's Comments

Mintage: 907,710
Obverse Dies: 13 Known

To date, thirteen obverse dies have been documented for 1871 Philadelphia coinage. A relatively common date in lower grades that becomes scarce in EF or better. This date is very scarce in Mint State and has proven to be elusive during the past few years.

Plate Coin: Fortin 109, Well Struck, White and Lustrous
