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. Strong detail and brilliant lustrous surfaces with a neat die crack nearly bisecting the obverse.
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!
A pleasing example of this early New Orleans Mint dime.
Solid detail with pleasing steel-gray surfaces. Just 150,000 minted and tough in any grade.
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.
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.
Well struck with pleasing champagne-white surfaces. 839,000 minted with fewer than 100 grading mint state at PCGS and NGC combined.
No Arrows. Just 95,000 minted before 'arrows' were added around the date and 12 million more were struck. This is a beautiful problem-free, steel-grey example of this scarce and underrated coin.
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 less than half that number have survived. This example is richly toned with shades of teal, dove-gray, and orange-gold.
CAC. Scarce in any grade and particularly elusive in mint state. This is a pleasing example with a champagne-white base and light dappled toning.
CAC. Well detailed with pleasing steel-gray surfaces. A modest 60,000 minted.
Strong detail with pleasing light silver-gray surfaces. Only 60,000 minted and truly scarce in any grade!
Brilliant deeply mirrored 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.
A spectacular blast white example of this better date. The strike is extremely sharp and the surfaces are virtually mark-free. Super quality!
Nice reflective surfaces with a slight golden tint. Very attractive and from the first year the Mint sold proofs to the public.
The last New Orleans mint dime struck before the outbreak of the Civil War. Only 40,000 minted and truly scarce in any grade.
Just 140,000 minted with a low survival rate. This is an attractive, well detailed example.
CAC. '1/0'. The so-called overdate as what appears to be remnants of a '0' can be seen beneath the '1' of the date. This is a well struck and attractive example.
