Obverse Dies: 1 Known
The key date to the Liberty Seated Dime series. 1874 Carson City dimes are rare in all grades and are almost always encountered with surface problems. Extremely rare in Mint State.
Always under strong collector demand with problem free examples bringing in excess of trend sheet prices. During 2003 and 2004, there was a rapid escalation of pricing for problem free 1874 Carson City dimes. During 2005, it appears that those pricing gains had stabilized but auction results in 2006 have shown another round of pricing increases.
