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!
No Stars. The first 'O' mint dime. Well detailed with a nice clear LIBERTY and pleasing surfaces.
A beautiful Gem example of this popular and scarce 'No Drapery' type. The strike is amazingly sharp and intense luster pours thru lovely golden-tan toning. Very nice!
A nice early New Orleans Seated Dime with strong definition and untoned surfaces.
Arrows. A superb gem with blast white luster, a great strike and pristine mark-free surfaces. Even the lofty grade of MS-66 may be too stingy for this amazing coin!
Arrows. Well struck and lustrous with rich russet-gold toning.
Arrows. Extremely well struck with shimmering mint luster and no significant marks. The MS-64 grade seems conservative.
Arrows. A nice blast white Gem with a sharp strike and excellent eye appeal. The short-lived 'Arrows' type is tough to find in Gem!
A beautiful near-Gem with a great strike and nice clean surfaces. The luster is creamy rich and brilliant with a very light golden-brown hue. A wonderful coin and a short-lived 'Arrow' type from the always popular New Orleans Mint!
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.
A spectacular blast white example of this better date. The strike is extremely sharp and the surfaces are virtually mark-free. A thrilling early Seated Dime!
60,000 minted with a very low survival rate. PCGS has only graded about 65 coins in all grades.
A stunning coin with frosty white devices and magnificent iridescent light golden mirrored field. This coin is amazing!
CAC. Well detailed with nice light silver-gray surfaces that are free of the striking and planchet problems that tend to plague this scarce date. Just 140,000 minted and harder to find than even that modest mintage might suggest.
Intensely lustrous with beautiful contrast between the very deep mirrored proof surfaces and the frosted design elements. A light golden glow gives this coin excellent eye appeal and makes it particularly nice for the grade.
Very well struck with minimal abrasions and a light champagne hue. 190,000 struck and truly rare in mint state. NGC has only awarded a mint state grade to 11 coins - and that figure of course includes regraded crack-outs!
Arrows. Vibrant white luster on the obverse with frosted devices. The reverse is particularly striking as it displays beautiful lilac toning!
