Liberty Seated Dimes - Carson City Dates

Collecting the Carson City dates within a complete Liberty Seated Dime set is always the major challenge for completing the set. Availability of the challenging 1871-CC through 1874-CC key dates has improved recently with significant pricing increases bringing out additional examples. However, collectors typically struggle with ever escalating prices and with difficulties in finding original circulated examples that are not corroded or have not been cleaned or "restored" via artificial toning. The latter point requires special attention even for Carson City dimes in the leading TPG holders. Many times, net graded coins are the only option for completing a Seated Dime set. In a stark contrast to the 1871-CC through 1874-CC dates, the later 1875-CC through 1878-CC dates are readily available, with the 1878-CC date being a bit more challenging.

This Carson City Date set registry is an opportunity for each registry participants to highlight the key dates of their prized Seated Dime collections.

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.
