Re: 1878-S dollar. Can you separate fact from fiction?

So can we speculate that the 78-S B2 minting process started on May 15? So let’s continue to discussion of when the 78-s Vam 58 SP plus business strikes, continuing on with the Vam 56 And finalizing with the Vam 62 were actually minted?

Re: 1878-S dollar. Can you separate fact from fiction?

Do you have a copy of Dodges’s SF Dollar delivered in May or early May telegraph?
This would be helpful in estimating how many total B-1’s were minted

Series 1: 78-s vam 60, 26 EDS and LDS , Vam 57 Type 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 all share the Same OB (1).
Vam 60, 26 and 57 each have different Reverses (3).
