Owner's Comments

Mintage: 7,380,711
Obverse Dies: 21 Known

Reverse die doubling was undoubtedly not a primary concern by mint workers during the hubbing of the 1889 reverse dies. As a result, at least five reverse dies have been identified with Class 1 rotated hub doubling.

Additional research remains for this date as many obverse and reverse dies are still not catalogued.
