  • Description:

    One of the reasons collectors enjoy the Seated Liberty series is the different varietal coins offered. The 1873 Arrows Seated Liberty Dime is one of those varietals that is more accessible than others. The 1873 Arrows Seated Liberty Dime features arrows on both sides of the date, on the obverse. 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 then removed them for the following year. The 1873 Seated Liberty Dime with Arrows has a mintage of just over 2.3 million and is in BU condition. Never been circulated, the 1873 Seated Liberty Dime contains absolutely no wear and all coin details are fully intact.

    The Seated Liberty series is one of the earlier coin collections that consisted of every coin matching in means of its design. Minted from 1836-1891, the Seated Liberty coin series goes down in history as one of the longest standing coin collections, after the modern Washington Quarter series. 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. The Philadelphia Mint was established in 1792, by the original Founding Fathers, and as flourished in coin production ever since. Before the Denver Mint, the Philadelphia Mint was the lead coin producer in all of the US, outshining any of her sister mint branches.
