Seated Liberty Dimes were made from 1837 to 1891. Christian Gobrecht designed this handsome dime which saw several design modifications during its run.
Seated Liberty Dimes were struck in Philadelphia, Carson City, New Orleans, and San Francisco.
CAC. No Stars. Large Date. Attractive steel-gray surfaces.
Crisp white luster and a sharp strike. In an old holder and with the 'look' of a mid-mint state coin!
No Drapery, Large Stars. A dazzling Gem with a razor sharp strike and beautiful golden-brown and light blue toning. An outstanding representative of this short-lived 'No Drapery' type!
No Stars. Well struck with lustrous light steel-gray surfaces that are mark-free. Very popular as the first New Orleans mint dime and a 'No Stars' type.
Fine Details. Cleaned.
Scarce in any grade with a modest 150,000 minted.
Warm steel-gray surfaces.
Only 72,500 minted.
Rich olive-gray surfaces with deep blue-green peripheral tone.
A better New Orleans dime that is tough to find without problems. This is a pleasing problem-free example.
Scarce in any grade as just 230,000 were minted and the survival rate was apparently quite low. This is an attractive light steel-gray example.
One of the 'keys' to the series and super tough in any grade with just 31,300 minted. This is a pleasing gunmetal gray example with strong detail and nice surfaces.
Arrows. Rich silver-champagne surfaces exhibit strong underlying luster and a very sharp strike.
Small Date. Satiny white luster and a sharp strike with excellent eye appeal.
Small Date. The mintages for early proofs (pre-1859) are unrecorded but minuscule at best. An estimated 50 1856 proof dimes were made with just 30-40 in existence today. This example has beautiful reflective surfaces and a subtle gold tint. A very rare and desirable example.
