1891 is a very common date for Liberty Seated dimes. Look on the

back of the coin to see if there's a small mint mark letter below

the wreath. It may be blank or there may be an O or S.

Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of

02/2011:

No mint mark (Philadelphia):

Very worn condition - $10

Moderately worn - $14

Slightly worn - $18

Almost no wear - $75

Uncirculated - $125 to $9,190 depending on quality

"O" mint mark (New Orleans):

Very worn - $12

Moderately worn - $14

Slightly worn - $18

Almost no wear - $86

Uncirculated - $144 to $8,910

"S" mint mark (San Francisco):

Very worn - $10

Moderately worn - $14

Slightly worn - $17

Almost no wear - $95

Uncirculated - $180 to $1,810

DISCLAIMER: The retail values quoted are the best available as

of the date shown, but may vary significantly due to changes in the

precious metals market. Also the wholesale (buying) price of a coin

will be less than the selling (retail) price. A reputable coin

dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation based on

inspection of the coin.
