Description & Analysis

It's not certain why the Philadelphia Mint shipped reverse dies to San Francisco and Carson City having mintmarks that were placed either above or below the wreath bow. The normal position since 1860 was below, and this experiment was conducted with dimes only in 1875. A similar trial was made with half dimes during 1870-72, though only the last date is found both ways. Perhaps, this was an attempt to deal with the problem of filled or indistinct mintmarks, since the below bow position was directly opposite Liberty's head on the obverse. Whatever the reason, no further such switches appear after 1875.

Though the major varieties of 1875 CC dimes have nearly equal numbers of die marriages, this variety is noticeably more scarce, especially in grades above XF. The Census figures below reflect only those coins certified since NGC began routinely distinguishing the mintmark position for this date.

One die marriage reveals extensive cracking on both sides, and F-102a is a Top 100 entry.
