Bust Dimes were made from 1796 to 1837. A Small Eagle reverse was used in 1796 and 1797.
Bust Dimes from 1809 to 1837 had a modified obverse and are known as Capped Bust Dimes.
16 Stars Reverse. Attractive warm gray surfaces that display nearly enough detail for the next grade. The overdate is very easy to see as the '8' digit is small and raised quite high. The reverse is the same design later used to strike the 1807 quarter eagle. Housed in an old 'green label' holder.
4 Berries. JR-2
JR-2. 4 Berries. Well worn but the major details and all 4 digits of the date are strong.
5 Berries. Significantly scarcer than the '4 Berries' variety. PCGS has graded far fewer than 100 coins in all grades. This is a pleasing two-toned gray example with solid detail and problem-free surfaces.
The first coin in the Capped Bust Dime series and a better date with a mintage of 51,065. This attractive two-toned gray example has nearly XF detail and strong eye appeal.
Large Date. A nice original piece with a champagne core and russet toning at the borders.
Small Date. Crisp silver-white luster and a great strike. The Small Date is several times rarer than the Large Date variety.
Dove-gray with a touch of peripheral turquoise and lavender. The detail is sharp and a trace of luster remains.
Small Date. Exceptionally nice with original dove-gray and golden surfaces and very sharp detail.
