Liberty Seated Dimes - Top 100 Varieties

The 100 Varieties set is a noble challenge for the experienced Seated dime collector. The set features a host of repunched dates, shattered dies, misplaced dates and important die marriages. Many varieties including the 1839 Pie Shaped Shattered Obverse, the 1841-O Large Closed Bud Reverse and the Small O Closed Bud Reverse are elusive in all but the lower circulated grades. Locating an 1874 Polished Arrows specimen will be extremely challenging as few are known. The Top 100 set objective will take considerable patience and diligent searching years across many years to complete.

It is important that collectors carefully study their Liberty Seated dimes and ensure proper variety attributions before submitting. The Liberty Seated dime web-book module at www.seateddimevarieties.com provides sufficient attribution information via this web-book link.

Rating: The weighted average of all coin grades (i.e. aggregated sum of each coin grade + CAC premium multiplied by its rarity factor divided by the sum of all rarity factors). Missing coins are included and assigned a grade of 0. This metric is the basis for order rank.

Complete: The number of coin entries divided by the total number of coins in the Set.

Weighted Grade: The weighted average of all coin grades (see calculation above), but excluding any missing coins.

%: The ratio of coins certified by CAC (either green or gold sticker). Calculated as the number of CAC coins divided by the total number of entered coins.

Rarity Factor: The rarity assessment for each date/variety uses the Sheldon scale of R1 through R8 with a R1 weight being the most common while an R8 weight being the most difficult to locate. Rarity estimates are by Gerry Fortin as listed in the Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors webbook.
