Set Description:

The double dime is a long time fascination of mine. The Seated Liberty obverse by Christian Gobrecht paired with the bald eagle reverse by William Barber make for a striking coin. Interestingly enough the coin is a bit of a combination of two more personal series favorites. The Seated Liberty obverse was the standard obverse for U.S. silver coins of the time and if the bald eagle seems familiar, it is the same eagle used on the Trade Dollar.

When looking to build a set the question always comes into mind, what grade should I use? One option naturally is to simply include your highest grade you own of each coin. But then that really isn't a set. So a grade was chosen based on affordability, quality, and a somewhat lower census. The AU 55 thus became the grade of choice. To make the search a bit more exclusive, the PCGS slabs are excluded for this set.
