  • Description:

    The Seated Liberty Dime series began its production in 1837 and continued until 1891. The 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.

    The Philadelphia Mint produced over 7.6 million dimes in 1883, making this dime an easier find in any grade for collectors. The 1883 Seated Liberty Dime is considered to be in very fine condition, exhibiting wear on both sides of the coin and is beginning to lack specific details. The Philadelphia Mint was the main mint, in the US, that produced some of the most valuable coin collections we know today. Going back to the Roman Empire and perhaps, before, the Goddess of Liberty has been used in many cultures to celebrate the concept of liberty and freedom from oppressors. The goddess has been used on currency worldwide, especially in the US, and still is a nationwide icon. Normally, the goddess is depicted wearing a draped robe that loosely fits and her hands are usually occupied holding other significant symbols, such as olive branches, arrows, or a torch. While the Seated Liberty Dime was being produced in 1883, the first electric lighting system began service, Niagara Falls becomes the country's first state park, and the Brooklyn Bridge was opened after 13 years of construction.
