What is the value of an 1841 dime?

It depends on where it was minted. There are only two mints that the coin could have came out of in 1841: Philadelphia and New Orleans. This was also a Seated Liberty Dime. If it was minted in Philadelphia, it could be worth between $19 and $600 and if it was minted in New Orleans, it would be valued between $23 and $1646. If it came out of New Orleans, there would be a small "O" mintmark at the bottom of the reverse under the wreath. If it came out of Philadelphia, it would be blank. View the source links to see the values-per-condition for each mint.
