  • Description:

    The 1853-O Seated Liberty Dime contains the Arrows that were only used on the die in 1853 and 1873. The 1853-O Seated Liberty Dime features arrows on both sides of the date, on the obverse, and contains a low mintage of only 1.1 million. When the US Mint adjusted the weight of each denomination, in the series, they also made adjustments to the actual coin design. In 1853 and 1873, the mint added arrows on either side of the date and only in 1853, they removed the arrows the following years. The 1853-O Seated Liberty Dime was minted by the New Orleans Mint and is considered to be in very fine condition. The 1853-O Seated Liberty Dime has wear on both sides of the coin, compromising the detailing of the actual coin.

    While the Seated Liberty series was being minted in 1853, other important events were occurring in the country. In 1853, Franklin Pierce becomes the 14th president of the US, a yellow fever outbreak occurs, taking over 7,700 lives. 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 Quarter. 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.
