Seated Liberty Dime from 1873-CC with No Arrows

The 1968-S No-S Roosevelt Dime is a notable and rare mint error that has intrigued collectors for its unusual characteristic— the absence of the mintmark ("S" for San Francisco Mint).

The obverse features the Seated Liberty design with Liberty seated on a rock, holding a shield in her right hand and a branch in her left. The word "LIBERTY" is inscribed on a shield.

The reverse design initially featured an eagle with its wings spread, arrows in its talons, and a shield on its breast.

However, due to changes in weight standards enacted by the Mint Act of 1873, arrows were added to the design mid-year to indicate a slight increase in the coin's weight.

The No Arrows variety was struck early in the year before the weight adjustment. These coins have the same design as previous years, without the addition of arrows on either side of the date.

The 1873-CC Seated Liberty Dime without arrows is considered a key date in the series due to its low mintage and historical significance. Collectors often seek this variety to complete their sets or to own a piece of numismatic history.

As with any coin, the value is influenced by factors such as condition, rarity, and overall demand among collectors.

Numismatists often use professional grading services to assess the condition and authenticity of such coins accurately.
