1856-O Liberty Seated Dime, Large O, Very Fine

89.00

Not a particularly small mintage at 1.18 Million, but slightly better as a date and very scarce above VF (an R-3 in VF). This suggests that when produced, they got out into circulation and stayed there until they wore out. This is a solid original example, with what seems like typically mismatched sides: the Obverse is clearly a solid VF+, while the Reverse is weaker. This date is noted by Brain Greer as typically being weakly struck on the wreath leaves, such as this coin. It also matches both his grading guide to VF for the Type, as well as PCGS's online grading guide (for a VF-30, no less) - being a bit persnickety when it comes to grading, it is my considered opinion that while this would undoubtedly certify as a VF, I feel that it JUST makes it overall. Never the less, a nice coin.
