Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1839 Dime is a relatively common coin that can be found in most grades without too much difficulty, including in top condition.  In fact, the PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census includes ten examples that are all MS67 or better.  Die variety collectors can choose from nine different varieties (as enumerated by researcher Gerry Fortin), including one die pair that was used to strike both Proofs and coins for circulation.  Among the most dramatic coins in the entire series of Liberty Seated Dimes is the 1839 "Pie-Shaped Shattered Obverse" Dime.  This extremely rare variety shows heavy die cracks that split the obverse into three triangular areas of almost equal size.
