Owner's Comments

Mintage: 8,270,000
Obverse Dies: 23 Known With Type I Reverse and 1 Known With Type II Reverse

The research by various authors has revealed twenty three different obverse dies paired with Type I reverse dies. There is a significant variability in die quality for Type I Carson City coinage. The Carson City mint's die storage techniques, or lack thereof, leads to many dies showing rust damage. Sharp strikes, even from rusted dies, are easy to find.

1876 Carson City Type II Reverse examples are limited to a single die pair. This variety is scarce in all grades. High grade AU and Mint State examples will be found with prooflike surfaces and strong strikes.
