  • Description:

    In 1853 and 1873, the US Mint changed the weight on all of the Seated Liberty coinage, plus added arrows as part of the die design. In 1856, then in 1875, the arrows were removed from the design. On the obverse, of the 1873 Seated Liberty Dime with Arrows, the Seated Liberty is pictured above the coin's date of mintage. On both sides of the date, are two arrows pointing in opposite directions. The reverse depicts the coin's denominational value. The 1873 Seated Liberty Dime with Arrows is in fine condition, exhibiting wear and is lacking in detailing. The 1873 Seated Liberty Dime with Arrows has a mintage of just above 2.3 million and is more difficult to find than the 1853.

    It was somewhat a tradition, for the US Mint, to make a coin series that covered every denomination and each denomination had the same design. The Seated Liberty series is one of the earlier coin collections that consisted of every coin matching in means of its design. Minted from 1837-1891, the Seated Liberty coin series goes down in history as one of the longest standing coin collections. For a time, there was a misunderstanding of a law that coins needed to be minted for at least 25 years before being replaced. It wouldn't be until the end of the Barber coin series that this misunderstanding would be redirected.
