  • Description:

    Featuring the same design on each denominational coin was the trend until 1916, wherein the US Mint assigned different designs to all the denominational coins. The Philadelphia, New Orleans, and San Francisco Mint participated in the production of the Seated Liberty Dime. The San Francisco Mint was established until 1854 so it joined in later on for the series. The New Orleans Mint opened intermittently from 1838-1861 then again from 1879-1909. The Old Mint, as it was also called, still stands as an official landmark, seeing its fair share of history. Its ownership switched 3 times in a matter of two weeks during the Civil War. Once it was decommissioned, it was used as a Coast Guard storage facility, fallout shelter, and assay office.

    The Certified Seated Liberty Dime 1849-O AU Details "Improperly Cleaned" NGC is in AU condition, although it does have some abrasions since it was improperly cleaned at some point in its life. Minted by the New Orleans Mint, the 1849-O Seated Liberty Dime carries the infamous "O" mint-mark. Seated Liberty design was used on the dime, quarter, and half dollar and would be replaced by the infamous Barber coin series. The dime underwent numerous revisions throughout its cycle as the US dime, creating varietal types for collectors. Some examples of these varieties are large and small dates, stars and no stars, drapery being removed, re-struck mint-marks, and a die crack at various stages of production. The Seated Liberty collection is not for the faint of heart and is mainly popular among experienced collectors.
