    I thought the seated "individual" was lady LIBERTY. I must have been wrong all these years.

    No, you're right. BigMintMark is just mistaken.

    You need to pay attention. Based on you post count, I assume you were around when RileyBoy posted his Seated find. IMO, one of the finest Seated that have been found. There are many of us that have joined the Seated club.

    One of our Cali CRH's found 2 seated halves last year. I am at a loss for his name, both S mint marks I believe.

    You can look at the date of joining, Feb. 2012 for SFB. He could have been lurking like me before, though.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
