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. Sharply struck and essentially flawless with attractive russet and olive-gray toning.
Drapery. This sub-type followed the 'No Drapery' and is about 3 times rarer and prohibitively rare in high grade.
No Drapery. A scarce date that is very elusive in this high of grade.
Just 150,000 minted and even rarer than that mintage might suggest as many were melted in the 1850's when their bullion value exceeded ten cents. This is a pleasing example with natural coin-gray surfaces.
A scarce date with a mintage of 72,500.
Scarce in any grade as just 230,000 were minted and the survival rate was apparently quite low.
Well detailed with light toning over a light silver-gray core. One of the 'keys' to the series and super tough in any grade with just 31,300 minted.
Lustrous white surfaces with just a hint of light gold and a sharp strike. While the mintage is 400,000, the survival rate is minimal and mostly lower grade. Just 5 pieces grade finer at PCGS.
A 'key' date in the series with just 60,000 minted and a very low survival rate. This example is silver-white with touches of warm gray and exhibits solid detail.
Solid for the grade with light silver-gray surfaces. A modest mintage of only 180,750 and a very desirable Civil War date.
