Thread: 1883 Seated Dime!

  1. #1

    1883 Seated Dime!

    Got out Sunday with several friends for some colonial cellar hole digging. It was a fun day but I didn't get my coil over anything earlier than the mid to late 1800's except for one little flat button. The find of the day for me was unexpected. I found a beautiful 1883 Seated Liberty Dime next to a well and cistern. Name:  62218789_10214162819888081_6476097644782419968_n.jpg

    I think they stopped making Half Dimes in 1873, so yours must be a dime?

    Either way it's a wonderful find, and it's in great shape!

    Lifetime totals:
    8 Large Cents, 370 Indian Heads, 2 Two Cent Pieces, 1 Capped Bust Half Dime, 1 Seated Half Dime, 9 Shield Nickels, 66 V Nickels, 119 Buffalo Nickels, 16 Seated Dimes, 124 Barber Dimes, 374 Mercury Dimes, 229 Rosies, 4 Seated Quarters, 15 Barber Quarters, 17 Standing Liberty Quarters, 83 Silver Washingtons, 1 Seated Half, 3 Barber Halves, 16 Walking Liberty Halves

    Thanks Danny! Not only did I see the slump continue for another week but, to add insult to injury, he dug up a CLAD spill at the cellar hole!

    Yeah, it's a Dime. I don't know why I had Half Dime on my brain. I can't edit the post now. Thanks!

    A clad spill at a cellar?? Holy smokes!! I feel for him. That could be a thread unto itself. I remember my two partners finding coppers near a cellar...then I got a good signal 10 feet from the lip...it was a memorial penny at 5 inches. I almost cried
    That's a good looking silver, Donnie! The woods in New England are beautiful! Congrats!
