Scrooge McDuck’s lucky number one dime — his first and most precious dime that he earned as a top-notch shoe shiner at age 10 in Glasgow, Scotland — was an 1857 or 1875 Seated Liberty dime.
Politics once again screwed something up. Scrooge McDuck’s adversary, Flintheart Glomgold, was also a Scot. But not originally. However, originally in the comic books, he was of European descent and came from South Africa. Disney made this change because of the apartheid policy of South Africa at the time that DuckTales was aired.
