Both seem to be lovely pieces, but I REALLY like the lower reverse of the 1875-S dime.

It was good to see you at the show last month. Thanks for showing me these two gems. They are very nice and the pictures don't do them justice. The colors on the toner are incredible!

Question, I  unsure about the eitiogy behind the phrase "orphan Annie" as it applies to liberty seated dimes in question. My brother 10cent Warren explained that a saloon girl of the 19th century had actually hoarded a certain year thereby the phrase was born.

Hi Paul,

I haven't heard the saloon girl story myself, but would love to embellish it and pass it on. I also recall meeting Frank Ross when visiting my "precioussss" safe deposit box under the Misty Mountains  back on Middle Earth.


Here are the two best articles that I've found on the "Orphan Annie Dime"

A description of the Heritage hoard of 612 coins.

I was pleasssed to find that only a dozen or so coins were finer than  mine in grade.
