1846 Liberty Seated Dime. Fortin-101. VF-20 (PCGS). Golden gray with distinctive rose highlights. A rare and popular key date that saw a mintage of just 31,300 pieces. Much scarcer across the board than the 1844 "Orphan Annie" issue, though current price guides don't always show the disparity. Pleasing for the assigned grade.
