Description & Analysis

Like the dimes dated 1898-S and 1899-S, significant numbers of this issue have been recovered in lightly worn condition from The Philippines. Such pieces circulated there for just a few years before a new coinage exclusively for the islands debuted in 1903. In fact, the spike in dime mintage at San Francisco this year probably resulted from the Philippine demand, and 1900-S dimes, quarters and halves are the most abundant issues retrieved from the Far East.

The typical survivor displays XF or AU details but is either darkly toned or cleaned with varying degrees of skill. Since so many of these survivors are problem coins, they are not included in the certified Census.

Examples in the lower grades of Mint State are more plentiful than they would be, were it not for the repatriated Philippine pieces. Gems, however, are extremely rare for 1900-S. On the positive side, the strike and luster of this issue are generally excellent.

A misplaced date variety, along with several repunched dates, are known for this issue, but these have attracted little interest from collectors.
