Owner Comments:

1855 Philadelphia With Arrows

Mintage: 2,075,000
Obverse Dies; 8 Known

Both the date and arrows were placed on the master hub for 1855 dimes resulting in a consistent positioning of these devices on the obverse die. Variations in date hubbing strength on the working dies produced strong and weak date transfers. The working die preparation process produced at least three 1855 obverse dies with doubling in the date or shield. 1855 dimes are much more difficult to find sharply struck than their 1853 or 1854 With Arrows counterparts.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101a, Proof Dies, Die Doubling On Date, Bold Strike
