The Liberty Seated design was used on all silver coins of the era 1837-1891. Each set of coins (dimes, half dimes, etc) is a challenge in itself and can keep a collector busy for years. Dave Bowers has written a virtual encyclopedia of the Liberty seated coinage, for experts and beginners. Those interested in classic U.S. coins will enjoy this book. Advanced collectors can learn something new. Type collectors may be encouraged to begin a set of dimes, quarters, or any of the denominations. Each date and mintmark is discussed in detail, along with a complete history of the coins. Meticulously researched, with a long list of acknowledgments, Bowers has written a superb reference book. Trade dollars, too, are discussed in detail. Trade dollars, while not the most popular collecting specialty, are lovely and interesting, and long overdue for a reference book. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It has a special place on my shelf.

Just what I was looking for.

I was very happy with the book and the service.
