I like that tea.
Ya got to love the ulgy ones as much as the purdy ones.... how long did she sit? In an acid base paper held together by turn of the century Scotch tape! Kinda of like an old show gal.... showing her age. Beatiful!
It looks so much better in hand hard to image this one...but crusty
Will go nicely in my dansco book
It looks like one of Mike's coins (mikesmountainvalues) I love his stuff but it is generally out of my price range. Did I get it right?
So $9.75 for this dime. Oh I forgot the tax!
You are absolutely correct! You must also binge looking at coins on the bay like me lol. This is actually my first time buying from him though. Good eye!
While yours is definitely nicer than mine, I believe that I have won the 'Cheapest seated liberty dime' challenge.
Sellers pics, they accepted my offer of $3 with free shipping:
Will be interesting to see how it looks in hand, will post pics once it arrives.
EDIT: I WAS WRONG--, but I'm not 100% on the mintmark possibility, will see what that looks like in person once it arrives, and give y'all an update.
Ironic thing is that the seller claims it is an 1873-P, but it's pretty obvious that it is in fact an 1828
I was wrong lol
Thing is, there were no seated-liberty coins struck in 1828. The series didn't start until 1838.
Since the third digit can't be a 2, it's probably a 7, and the last looks more like a 3 than an 8. Better lighting will show whether there's a mintmark or not. The seller's probably telling the truth, though.
I bought it mostly for the silver content- I will learn more about these soon, but my main focus is IHP
But wait look here at this link on the variety https://www.indianvarieties.com/cents/indian-head-cents/1880-indian-head-penny/1880-odd-001/ and see the link below too.
This is my second one I've found my first a Au.55 Plate coin.
WOW! Nice find, I love a good IHP variety. Never have owned one of these myself, but will keep an eye out for it.
If you'd give your example an acetone dip, it would be an even nicer example. Would remove a lot of that gunk around the lettering.
Now to find the 8 b reverse cud
