Liberty Seated Dimes - Top 25 MPD Dies

The collecting of Seated coinage with misplaced dates (MPD) is a niche activity among certain Liberty Seated Collector Club (LSCC) members. When considering the various specialty Seated dime variety sets (Top 100, Ultimate, Shattered Dies and Cuds), the Misplaced Date set is one of the easier to accomplish and should be within the reach of both experienced and newer variety collectors. None of the 25 listed varieties are extreme rarities and can be located on eBay, coin shows and major auctions. Now that Stacks Bowers and Heritage are using the www.seateddimevarieties.com Fortin attribution numbers, it is easier than ever to purchase AU or Mint State examples of misplaced date varieties towards completing this set. Please do not feel that a completed set is necessary for inclusion into the open registery. Partial and initial sets are more than welcomed!

Misplaced dates for the Seated Dime denomination have been well explored and documented in Gerry Fortin's online web-book. You are invited to publish your Top 25 MPD varieties in the Open Set Registry. If there are any questions on how to get started, simply email Gerry Fortin for support.

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.
