I would take it right now if I were you, but that's because I love Seated Liberty dimes and you don't often find problem free even wear coins that cheap.

I would take it, it is definitely the top of what I would pay for that one.

I'd pick it up. Not a steal but I like dimes and the price is fair.

I'd walk away. $8.75 can buy a lot more unless you are wealthy.

Tuff decision since it is about an $15 + coin for the price you mentioned. Even with postage at $9.50, you'll never see that again.

Looks like a decent deal, worn but problem free.

IMO - not a great deal .. .but not a bad deal either.

How I look at buying coins like this is, what would it cost to purchase a better grade.
Numismedia list a 1856 large date at $22.00

So in my opinion, you maybe spend $15.00 or so more (with the $9.50 your spending on this coin)
and you might be able to find a very nice VF coin.

But again .. $9.50 for this coin is not a bad deal

Looks like a good deal to me especially if I am understanding the first post to mean that it is $8.75 and $9.50 total after including the shipping. I think some here have read it as $8.75 for the coin and $9.50 for shipping, total of $19.25
