||DIMES - SEATED LIBERTY, LEGEND OBVERSE
||NGC MS 66
F-109. The sole diagnostic for this variety is the position of the date, level and somewhat further right vis-a-vis the shield than the other varieties of this date. One of the most common dates in the series rated only R-3 in mint state. The pops back this up with 29 coins already graded MS-66, and another three graded MS-67. While the toning gives the coin good eye appeal, the strike is not particularly sharp most notably on the upper left of the reverse, making the coin just average for the grade. Bought from Laura Sperber at Legend, May 2005.
