  • Description:

    The 1859-O Seated Liberty Dime has one of the lowest mintages in the series with only 480,000 minted! Containing heavy wear and lacking in detail, the 1859-O Seated Liberty Dime is in fine condition. Minted by the New Orleans Mint, the 1859-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 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. The Seated Liberty collection is not for the faint of heart and is mainly popular among experienced collectors.

    The Seated Liberty design was used on all coinage for each denomination. 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 1837-1861 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.
