Less than 60 years after America’s Independence, the Liberty Seated design appeared on all 90% silver U.S. coins. is classic design featured a full figure of Liberty seated on a rock, her left hand holds a pole with a liberty cap on it and her right holds a shield inscribed LIBERTY. Today, Liberty Seated coinage is generally considered scarce – given their low original mintages and loss over time due to attrition and silver melts. But now, you can add a complete Type Set of fractional Liberty Seated coins to your collection – including the half dime, dime, 20¢ piece, quarter and half dollar!
The highlight of this historic set is the short-lived 20¢ piece issued for circulation in 1875 & 1876 – two years only! Because it was too close in size and appearance to the quarter, the two were easily confused. Although the public rejected them back then, today they’re highly prized collector favorites! Just imagine people like Kit Carson, James Marshall of gold rush fame or audiences attending P.T. Barnum’s circus show could have used these historic silver coins! Each one is encapsulated, your set comes presented in a handsome display case, and you’ll SAVE off individual prices.
