Lot Description
1856-S 10C VF35 PCGS. The First San Francisco Mint's top priority was striking the double eagles essential to the thriving West Coast economy. Thus, no dimes were struck at the facility until 1856, and only to the extent of 70,000 pieces, few of which were saved. A dusky steel-gray example with moderate wear and scattered field abrasions.
