  • Description:

    The 1842-O Seated Liberty Dime has a low mintage of just over 2 million and is in fine condition. Fine condition contains a lot of wear, with the main coin details lacking. Minted by the New Orleans Mint, the 1842-O Seated Liberty Dime carries the infamous "O" mint-mark. The 1842-O Seated Liberty Dime is also a high premium coin, due to its mintage and accessibility. Seated Liberty design was used on the dime, quarter, and half dollar and would be replaced by the infamous Barber coin series. The series underwent numerous revisions throughout its cycle as the US coinage, 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.Other varieties common among the dimes contain large and small stars on the obverse.

    Thought to be the law for a long time, the Seated Liberty design was used on all coinage, such as the dime, quarter, and half dollar. This 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. It's 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.
