Seated Liberty Half Dimes were produced from 1837-1873 in many different varieties. Its design depicts the figure of Liberty sitting on a rock while holding a shield.
The “No Stars” variety of the Seated Liberty Half Dime was minted at Philadelphia in 1837 and New Orleans in 1838 and lacks stars on the obverse side of the coin. In 1838, a circle of 13 stars was added around the inside of the obverse side’s border, creating the “Stars” variety. From 1853 to 1855, arrows were added to the right and left sides of the date. Between 1856 and 1859, the arrows were removed, marking a return to the pre-1853 design featuring stars. In 1860, the stars were replaced with the phrase “United States of America”, which is known as the “Legend” variety.
