Series Overview

Proof Liberty Seated dimes were struck for the duration of the long-running series, which was designed by Christian Gobrecht and issued from 1837 through 1891. Proof mintage vary from a relative handful for some of the earliest issues to more than 1,000 during latter years. Proofs exists for every variety.

The major sub-varieties in the Liberty Seated dime are:
  • Variety 1: No Stars on Obverse (1837-1838)
  • Variety 2: Stars on Obverse (1838-1853)
  • Variety 3: Arrows at Date (1853-1855)
  • Variety 2 resumed: with Variety 3 weight standard; 2.49 grams (1856-1860)
  • Variety 4: Legend on Obverse (1860-1873)
  • Variety 5: Arrows at Date (1873-1874)
  • Variety 4 resumed: with weight standard of Variety 5; 2.50 grams (1875-1891)

Early higher-end proof Liberty Seated dimes typically trade in the low five-figure price threshold, with cameo examples realizing higher prices. Among the scarcest of the mid-century proof Liberty Seated dimes are the Variety 3 pieces, with the 1853 Arrows the toughest of these. Latter proof Liberty Seated dimes are more common and more affordable, though cameos and deep cameo issues are scarce and commonly trade for four- and five-figure prices.
