Description & Analysis

This issue is common in most grades, but it is not nearly as plentiful as the 1883 dime in the higher circulated grades. Mint State pieces, however, seem to have survived in about equal numbers. The biggest challenge will be to find an example with the head of Liberty fully struck, and this remained an issue for coins of this type through the end of production in 1891.
