1853 LIBERTY SEATED 10C, ARROWS MS67
ARROWS. GEM BLAST SATIN WHITE.
1853 saw one of the larger land purchases in US history when nearly thirty thousand square miles was purchased from Mexico for $10 million. The purchase, which included large tracts of Arizona and New Mexico, was a necessary move in the ability to create a trans-American railroad. This 1853 dime recalls a substantial land grab for the US.
