About This Set: The Liberty Seated Dime series is composed of eight design changes or groups. While some of the design changes are major and obvious, others are subtle in nature and require careful examination.

Collecting Seated Dimes in mint state is a significant challenge. Individuals who attempt this series should have a long term perspective of 10 or more years for building a premier set. There are always mint state Seated Dimes on the market, but the challenge lies with finding specimens that provide excellent eye appeal, originality and investment value for the grade. Locating PQ specimens will take years of searching dealer pricelists and auction catalogues.The following registry set of business strike examples presents the finest PCGS Liberty Seated Dimes that I have been able to locate and afford over the last 20 years.

After collecting Seated Dimes for many years, I released the third reference book on this historic United State coinage series. The medium is a web-book via a website entitled www.seateddimevarieties.com.

Www.seateddimevarieties.com presents 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. Over 1200 dimes are listed with 7000+ photographs to simplify variety attributions. Cross reference tables for Ahwash and Greer have been established for associating the varieties to these well known reference sources.

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 experience for this collector and researcher.
