Description & Analysis

The San Francisco Mint continued its erratic quarter production schedule of the late 1890s by producing a mere 708,000 pieces in 1899. The federal government shipped a percentage of this issue's delivery to the Philippine Islands, where most entered the channels of commerce. Most of the survivors are cleaned XF or AU pieces. This date is underrated and underappreciated by many, particularly in the mid-Uncirculated grades.
