Here is another Seated Liberty half dime I am eyeing. Looks very similar to the one I posted previously. I assume VF35.




I think this one has slightly less eye appeal, although it could be due to the lighting.

No idea. Maybe dented or clipped?

I much prefer your other 1853, although it does appear to be "slightly" higher in grade.
Brother, can you spare a "BARBER" dime?

Fish scales get a lot of leeway because of their size and fragility, but this one has issues. It looks like it took a couple rim hits, and possibly more. I'm at a tossup between VF and VF details here. The other one you posted has much better eye appeal. JMHO.

I think it makes EF-40 sharpness, but this doesn't look like a clip - guessing a details coin almost for sure.

They are, so I decided to go for the problem-free coin.
