    I'm not a huge fan of seated coins compared to bust coinage. Here's the only seated dime I own that isn't slicked out lol

    My grandmother was born in 1883, and she was always looking for coin with that date on them. Among her accumulation was this dime love token.

    The year 1858 marked the first time that the Philadelphia Mint offered Proof coins on regular basis. Here is my one 1858 Proof coin, the dime.

    The first Seated Dimes were the 1837 pieces that had no stars on the obverse. The guide books say these coins are "common," but I have not found that to be the case.

    Saving my pennies (snicker, snicker) for a better graded-example, but this was my Father's, so it literally is priceless to me. This was his 1st graded coin he ever purchased:

    My 1875 was found circulating in Syracuse NY in the 1970s by my departed friend. A gift to me before he left us. No pictures to share as it’s in my SDB while I’m in Florida
    Promise to come back to this thread in April

    AmishJedi posted a half dime so I will too. I pulled this out of the clean-out pit at a recycled newspaper paper mill (college job).

    Otherwise I think this is my only dime, but it's a contemporary counterfeit. It probably came from my great-great grandfather, Civil War veteran.

    Never even tried to clean to identify the date
    Old picture, it’s back in NY
