Dates Range From 1838-1891. Nice Original Fine Condition!

Seated dimes are one of the longest running series of U.S. coins.

Issued from 1837 to 1891 the series saw several minor design changes.

For the first two years the obverse (front) design was just a seated liberty figure, later in 1838 stars were added around liberty.

In 1853 arrows were added at the date (to make the coins heavier!) These were removed in 1856. In 1859 the stars were replaced with "United States Of America" around liberty (which was previously on the reverse).

The wreath on the reverse (back) was also enlarged and enhanced at that time. The design remained unchanged until production ceased in 1891.
