I have a 100% positive feedback rating from over 470 transactions on eBay.
FOR SALE: A 90% SILVER 1857 SEATED LIBERTY DIME.
VF Details - My opinion based on ANA Grading Standards and my experience.
I am selling the coin as a Fine because I believe the coin has been cleaned.
Please look at the images and decide for yourself before you bid.
The images show the actual coin you will receive enlarged to about 5x magnification.
The white highlighting on the edge of some devices is reflection from the scanner glass.
My scanner does not pick up luster, tends to wash out the fields and highlight flaws.
The actual coin is darker than the images and looks nicer in hand than in the images.
Images of "LIBERTY" and the Bow/Ribbon are also included enlarged to about 10x magnification.
Please keep in mind that images at this magnification tend to exaggerate any imperfections.
Details emerging on Liberty's head.
Clasp and neckline visible.
Scroll and LIBERTY complete.
Some detail visible in leaves.
Details in ribbon and bow are weak.
Denticles mostly complete:
Obverse lower right quadrant weak probably due to strike.
Minor rim dings: Obverse 10:30 - Reverse 1:00.
In my opinion, this 151 year-old coin would be a good addition to any collection.
The coin will be shipped in a plastic bag inside a reinforced bubble-pack envelope.
The price you pay includes insured First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation.
You can return this coin within 7 days of receipt as long as the coin is in the original 2x2 holder.
Please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org before you return the coin.
I take Paypal, Money Orders or Cashier/Bank Checks.
Please contact me before you bid if you have any questions.
