Owner Comments:

1878 Philadelphia

Mintage: 1,678,000
Obverse Dies: 4 Known With Type I Reverse and 10 Known With Type II Reverse

1878 Philadelphia dimes are considered a tougher "common" date to locate. The Type I reverse variety is very scarce in all grades including a R6 designation in Mint State. Examples of 1878 dimes with a Type I reverse should command a premium. In general, nice higher grade 1878 dimes are currently underrated when valued at common date pricing.

Plate Coin: Fortin 102, Type I Reverse, Rare Mint State Example of Type I Reverse Variety. Silver Centers With Peripheral Rose, Blue and Gray Toning, Very Choice Example
