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.
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!
CAC. No Stars. The first New Orleans dime.
No Stars. Strong detail with very attractive problem-free surfaces.
No Stars. The first coins struck at the New Orleans mint were 30 1838-O dimes that were delivered on May 7,1838. This is a well detailed example with pleasing surfaces.
Scarce in any grade with a modest 150,000 minted.
A better New Orleans dime that is tough to find without problems. This is a pleasing problem-free example.
CAC. A Gem for the grade with pleasing steel-gray surfaces that are problem-free.
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.
Arrows. A short-lived three year type with mintages dropping each year after a prodigious start in 1853. Mint state coins from 1855 are scarce with just 13 coins grading finer than this example at PCGS. The present coin has creamy mint luster and a sharp strike with all the design elements well detailed and even the centers of each star fully defined. The surfaces are nearly mark-free making the MS-64 grade seem quite conservative.
From the first year the mint sold proof sets to the public with about 300 sets made. Current estimates are that just 50 to 70 have survived. This example is richly toned with shades of teal, dove-gray, and orange-gold.
Deeply mirrored white surfaces with nice cameo producing frost on the design elements. The surfaces are very attractive and virtually mark-free. A scarce date as many of the 800 proofs minted remained unsold and were melted.
Well detailed with pleasing light gray surfaces. A better date with a mintage of 140,000.
Just 140,000 minted with a low survival rate. This is an attractive, well detailed example.
Well struck with lustrous cream-white surfaces. Popular Civil War date.
A date that must have seen heavy circulation as it is much scarcer than the 157,000 coin mintage might suggest. This is a nice example with strong detail and pleasing natural gray surfaces.
175,000 minted and tough-to-find in any grade.
