Description United States ten cent coin that was minted in Philadelphia between 1837-1891. The obverse side depicts a seated Liberty with thirteen stars above and the date 1838 below. The reverse side depicts a wreath with "one dime" within surrounded by "United States of America." This item may be a contemporary counterfeit because the design appears to be struck in copper, there are no dentils, and the edge is too clean.
