Obverse 1                                                 Reverse A


Comments: Listed on eBay in late October 2009 and described as an electrotype copy of an original 1870 dime. The obverse date position matches well with 1870 F-101 die pairing. $116.50 was paid for the bogo, a substantial sum for a Seated dime copy.
