Owner Comments:

1868 Philadelphia

Mintage: 464,600
Obverse Dies: 12 Known

The 1868 Philadelphia date has been full of surprises. The twelve known obverse dies are extremely high given a moderate mintage of 464,600 pieces. It could be speculated that the Philadelphia mint planned to significantly increase Seated dime production in 1868 after the low mintage years of 1863 through 1867. Many die pairs were produced but saw limited usage as evidenced by the striking quality of 1868 dimes and the complete lack of late die state or cracked dies.
