Ron Guth: In a survey of the members of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club, published in the March 2008 issue of the Gobrecht Journal, the 1838-O Dime was ranked tenth among the Ten Greatest New Orleans Seated Coins: "This dime was the first coin struck at the New Orleans branch mint when 30 pieces were delivered on May 7, 1838.  This date is popular as a type coin and rare in mint state but average circulated pieces are generally available to the interested collectors.  The Eliasberg specimen was graded MS-64 when it sold at auction in May 1996.  More recently the beautifully toned Pittman specimen was graded NGC MS-64 when it was sold by DLRC Auctions in the Richmond Collection in March 2005.  This issue received scattered support from respondents, most likely due to the significance each member placed upon its historical importance."
