In 1853, subsidiary denominations of Seated Liberty coinage had arrows added to the date to signify a slight debasement of the coin's Silver content. This was done in order to bring the face value of the coin back below its rising melt price in an attempt to keep it in circulation use. The addition of these arrows was a clear indication of the coin's lower Silver content, leading to earlier issues to be taken out of circulation and melted in large quantities, which is why many earlier issues are much scarcer than their mintage numbers would imply. In addition to the arrows at the date, the quarter and half received the addition of rays around the eagle on the reverse. While the arrows persisted until 1855, the rays were present only on the 1853 issue.
