    Not an US coin, but this Australian florin was minted in San Francisco during WWII when Australia asked the US to make our coins. And after the war we had to pay back, so the silver content in our coins were reduced from 92.5% to 50% from 1946!

    There's the S mint mark above the date.

    Going way back to the beginning of the San Francisco mint:

    1854ten.jpg

    When San Francisco was a muddy streeted, with rotting ships in the bay and frequent fires burning the city down and vigilante committees were law enforcement type of frontier city. The literal Barbary Coast.
