Pretty light blue hues intermingle with coppery fields on this well struck type coin. The Large stars are strongly punched with all centrils showing. Reverse toning exception with the coppery toning quite appealing and showing tinges of purple accent. The No Drapery, Large Stars variety is noted on the PCGS label. Colors much more vibrant in-hand than my pics. Choice.

1839

VF20

Raw

$50

The 1839 with its large 1,053,115 mintage is a nice date choice for a Variety 2 example in a Type set. This coin has much going for it with golden hues ( my image much more greyish than the coin in-hand)  , a full LIBERTY and good obverse strike. The reverse is slightly rotated and the rim and denticles show mis-alignment between 6 and 8 o'clock. Minor ding to left of date leaves me to categorize this as Market Acceptable.

This 1839-O Seated dime with No Drapery is variety F-106 , the EDS of the very popular Shattered Cobweb reverse.  The F-106 pairs Obverse 4 with Reverse E with Large O.

The early reverse die crack is easily seen connecting at the lower bottom of ATE and also connecting the S and O. The die crack also is seen running through the middle potion of the ribbon.

PCGS 80804067

$100

This 1852Type 3 Stars Obverse displays consistent gun metal grey surfaces on both the obverse and reverse. Stars detail is good across the board.  Miss Liberty's head features are very strong, this VF35 example could easily fit with a run of X40s and would not look out of place. This date rarely comes up at auction in grades lower than AU50, so if looking for a mid grade example, this presents a good opportunity. Original.

The 1853 With Arrows is always in demand as a 3 year type coin. With a mintage of over 12 million this date accounts for approximately 60% of the type for all three years. Gunmetal grey toning, a couple of reverse hits above the I in DIME noted.  Original

The 1854 is a good choice for the Arrows at date 3 year type coin. Basically, the stated mintage of 4,470,000 is about one third of the 1853 With Arrows at approximately the same price. This example displays crusty old time surfaces and would fit the bill for for raw set collectors seeking this grade level. Nicer in-hand than my image. Original.

This 1854 With Arrows Type 4 is an excellent choice for either date or Type set collectors pursuing a VF-EF set. The 1854 was issued in large quantity, to the tune of over 4 million struck, put this pales in comparison to the plus 12 million first issued a year earlier. Priced basically the same as the 1853, this coin presents good value. Stars and denticles are well struck, silver grey patina is the ticket here. Original.

1856-S

AU Details

Raw

$1,550

The 1856-S  Seated Dime is numismatically important as the 1st 10C minted at the San Francisco mint. It is even more scarce than its mintage of 70,000 suggests, due to silver shipments made to China and the fact that collectors at that time were only collecting for date and a common Philadelphia issue would fit the bill.  The 1856-S is unquestionably a key date rarity for the series, and is an R5 in EF-AU. The present example was subjected to an old wipe, and lacks mint luster for its state of preservation. That being said, the fields display a pleasing golden hue.  Note the Large S mintmark. This coin has been appropriately discounted by the consignor and is priced at the Grey Sheet XF40 level. Collectors may choose to submit for grading, or keep as the highlight of a raw album set. Market Acceptable as a raw coin given the key date rarity. New 4/21

Raw

$110

This 1856 Large Date example is oh so nice exhibiting original gunmetal grey fields with lots of remaining design features. The Large date is identifiable by the "upright 5" style , all large dates issued this way. Lots of remaining detail on Miss Liberty's head area, full star lines, and nearly full denticles except for some weakness between 7-9 o'clock. The reverse equally problem free. No rim nicks seen. A strong choice for a raw album adventure. The Large date with roughly 4-5x  the market premium compared to its' Small Date counterpart in this grade range. Original .

EF40

PCGS 80804074

$185

The 1856 Seated dime Large date variety is far more rare than its' Small date counterpart with just a reported 722,500 issued. If you have both the Small and Large varieties in-hand, the Large version is easy to identify as the date is visually much bigger. However, if viewing separately, the upright 5 will do nicely as a point of identification. Stars are well formed, denticles strong. Reverse with a bit of golden highlights. This coin with the gunmetal steel grey surfaces that I like so much on these 19th century little gems. Nicely priced as PCGS guide shows $250 in XF40, with 22 certified. The Large Date variety is on the holder. Original.

The 1856 has two major varieties, Small date and Large Date. This example is of the more available Small Date, which shows the date numerals located with room between the bottom of the pedestal and the bottom rim denticles. Nice underlying aqua green toning adds to the charm of this piece which will easily fit into a raw album set.  Original .

1856SD

AU50

PCGS 27364023

$165

The 1856 Seated dime was issued in both Small and Large date varieties, with the Small date variety common. The variety can be easily attributed by the slanted 5 and that the date is about equidistant from the rim and base of the rock. This example with lustrous silver and gold splashes. Reverse toning is especially attractive. PCGS has certified 12 at the AU 50 grade, with a suggested $185 price. The Small Date variety is on the holder. Original.
