1873-CC Seated Liberty Dime: No Arrows

The 1873-CC Seated Liberty Dime without arrows is a distinct variety within the Seated Liberty Dime series.

In 1873, the U.S. Mint made changes to the design of certain denominations, including the Seated Liberty Dime.

The arrows at the date were added to denote a weight change mandated by the Coinage Act of 1873.

No Arrows at the Date: The absence of arrows flanking the date on the obverse distinguishes the "No Arrows" variety.

Subsequent issues in 1873 and beyond included arrows next to the date to indicate a change in the coin's weight.

Carson City Mint Mark (CC): The presence of the "CC" mint mark denotes that the coin was struck at the Carson City Mint in Nevada. Coins from the Carson City Mint are generally sought after by collectors.

These dimes are significant not only for their connection to a transitional period in coinage but also because the Carson City Mint produced relatively fewer coins compared to other mint facilities, adding to their scarcity.

If you have an 1873-CC Seated Liberty Dime without arrows, it is advisable to have the coin authenticated and graded by reputable numismatic grading services.
