By no means was 1900 the first year both branch mints reported problems with the dies. Even the Carson City Branch mint had reported problems with the dies when it was in operation. The main problem according to the branch mints was the dies would not last (die life) as long as would be expected. Chief Engraver [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_E._Barber Charles E.

1900-S Boiler Problem

San Francisco Mint Equipment Problems
Working conditions at the San Francisco Mint in 1900 stand in sharp contrast compared to today standards (2020). In 1900 at the San Francisco Mint there was no electrical lighting, most machinery had not been upgraded or replaced since 1874, plus the machinery did not run off of electricity. In addition, the ovens and furnaces were fueled by wood or coal .
