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.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
