Owner Comments:

1863 San Francisco

Mintage: 157,500
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

Strike weakness is common for 1863 San Francisco coinage. Examples are often seen with a flat head and weakness in the letters (OF AME)RICA. Reverse weakness will be found on the bow knot and lower wreath. Only one die pair is known.

Scarce in all circulated grades and becomes difficult in problem free EF-AU. Another San Francisco mint date that is rare in Mint State.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, A Silky, Satiny Specimen With Intense Cartwheel Luster. Faint Sky Blue, Gold and Rose Toning, Well Struck Throughout. Formerly in the Frog Run, Lovejoy and Reed Hawn Collections
