Owner's Comments

Mintage: 11,283,939
Obverse Dies: 14 Known

This date is very common and currently plentiful in MS63 through MS65 grades due to a recent hoard. However, it becomes more difficult in MS66 and rare In MS67 grades.

The task of researching and cataloguing the obverse dies is overwelming for the 1887 date due to the very high mintage. At least 60 obverse dies are possible.

Plate Coin: Light to Moderator Rose and Gold Toning On Both Obverse And Reverse.
