A Guide Book of Liberty Seated, 2nd edition

608 pages. $29.95.

Immerse yourself in the full expanse of the U.S. Mint’s historic Liberty Seated coinage—half dimes, dimes, twenty-cent pieces, quarters, half dollars, Gobrecht dollars, silver dollars, and trade dollars. These classic silver coins, featuring the Goddess of Liberty seated with a cap and pole, were minted from 1836 until 1891. Made in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Carson City, and San Francisco, they greased the wheels of American commerce during the Hard Times Era and the nation’s gold and silver rushes, through the Civil War and its aftermath, finally retiring during America’s Gilded Age.

“Dean of American Numismatics” Q. David Bowers presents hobbyists with everything they need to know about collecting Liberty Seated coins: mintages, grading standards, auction records, keys to building a high-quality collection, and more. With trademark wit and experience Bowers describes the rich historical background of these coins and their era. More than 1,500 full-color images and a wealth of knowledge that cannot be matched in any other single source make this the leading reference on Liberty Seated coinage.

Includes appendices on designer Christian Gobrecht; the mints that made Liberty Seated coinage; die-making, master dies, hubs, trials, and splashers; “A Visit to the Mint in 1861”; alternative U.S. currency; and more.

“Reading a Q. David Bowers book will expand your knowledge and inspire you

to broaden and deepen your own studies.”
