Owner Comments:

1879 Philadelphia

Mintage: 15,100
Obverse Dies: 5 Known

Despite its low mintage, 1879 Philadelphia dimes are readily available in Mint State and scarce in circulated grades. Surprisingly, five obverse dies were used to strike a very limited amount of coinage. One of the five obverse dies was discovered in 2005.
