Like its Stars Obverse predecessor, the proof Legend Obverse Seated Dime series spans two noncontinguous time periods. The latter type was produced in the Philadelphia Mint from 1860-1873, and then again from 1875 through the series' end in 1891. (The brief gap was due to the addition of arrows on both sides of the obverse date in order to signify a slight weight increase for the denomination.) Examples of this type are the most numerous proof Seated Dimes in today's market, and they are eagerly sought by collectors and investors alike.
