If you are running 9i, you can use:

SQL> SELECT DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL( 'SEQUENCE','YOUR_SEQUENCE_NAME','YOUR_SCHEMA') FROM DUAL;

Try this select statement:

select 'create sequence '||sequence_name||
       ' increment by '||increment_by||
         ' start with '||last_number||
         ' minvalue '||min_value||
         ' maxvalue '||max_value||' ;'
from all_sequences
where sequence_name='YOUR_SEQ'

Try this

TO GET CRITICAL INFORMATION USE:


SELECT  min_value, max_value, increment_by, cycle_flag, order_flag, cache_size, last_number
FROM  dba_sequences
WHERE sequence_owner = 'SEQUENCE_OWNER'
AND sequence_name = 'SEQUENCE_NAME'                                                                              

U CAN ALSO SAY ( SELECT * ) TO GET MORE INFORMATION ON THE SEQUENCE
