Description & Analysis

The 1898 dime from San Francisco has the lowest mintage of the three mints producing this denomination in that year (1,702,507 pieces). Its scarcity is similar to that of the 1898-O, but for different reasons. According to Barber coinage authors David and John Feigenbaum (1999): 'The 1898-S ... is not available today because much of the coinage of the San Francisco Mint that year was sent to the Philippines. Over the years, hoards of 1898-S ... coins have found their way back to the U.S., but these have largely consisted of cleaned EF and AU pieces. True unc's are very scarce.'
