Set Description:

Featured in this listing are the No Drapery and With Drapery Liberty Seated Dimes in my reference collection. Actually, I much prefer the design appearance of the No Drapery and With Drapery/Stars dates over the With Legend dates.



The Liberty Seated Dime series is composed of eight design changes or groups. While some of the design changes are major and very obvious to collectors, others are subtle in nature and require careful examination. Historically, the Redbook has defined 121 different dates, mintmarks and major varieties to form a complete set. The following registery set of business strike examples presents the finest NGC and PCGS Liberty Seated Dimes that I have been able to locate and afford over the last 18 years.



During August 2004, I released a new website entitled www.seateddimevarieties.com that presents collectors with The Definitive Reference Source for Liberty Seated Dime Die Varieties. The website contains detailed analysis of all known obverse and reverse dies and die marriages by date and mintmark. Cross reference tables for Ahwash and Greer have been established for associating the varieties to these historical reference sources. Also attempted are rarity estimates for Seated Dime varieties and suggested pricing premiums. A "Major 100 Varieties" list is offered to stimulate the formation of advanced Liberty Seated Dime die variety set building.



In addition, I will be adding incremental descriptions to the Seated Dimes in this registry to aid with the understanding of the design group and variety types found throughout this wonderful and long lived series.



As always, good luck to anyone who has the patience and financial resources to attempt a high grade set of Liberty Seated Dimes. It has been a very enjoyable journey for this collector and researcher.
