Liberty Seated Half Dimes were produced from 1837 until 1873 when they were replaced by the nickel five-cent coin. Half Dimes were minted in Philadelphia, New Orleans, and San Francisco. Due to its small size, the series has not been popular with collectors. As a result many of the circulation strike issues can be found reasonably priced in all grades. However, as might be expected, Superb Uncirculated pieces may require a bit of searching. The proof issues offer much more of a challenge. The proof series is filled with rarities and distinctive type coins. The 1837 No Stars is a classic that many consider to be an artistic masterpiece as well as a numismatic treasure. Additional types in this series are the With Drapery and Arrows at Date pieces, the "Stars Obverse" type and all of the "Legend Obverse" dates (1860-73). The Proofs struck in 1854 and later are more readily available but are still considered to be quite rare.
