Owner Comments:

1866 San Francisco

Mintage: 135,000
Obverse Dies: 2 Known

Two obverse and reverse dies used in 1866 by the San Francisco mint to produce three die pairing varieties.

The two reverse dies can be easily distinguished by the appearance of the mintmark. There is a weak mintmark reverse (Small Weak S) and a bold mintmark reverse (Small Thin S). Most 1866 San Francisco dimes will come from the reverse with a weak mintmark as Varieties 101 and 103 are more common than 102.
