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.
JR-2. 4 Berries. Well worn but the major details and all 4 digits of the date are strong.
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 E's. Attractive gray shaded surfaces exhibit splashes of remnant luster.
This upper-end XF has very sharp detail and pleasing problem-free surfaces.
CAC. A beautiful early dime with fantastic original surfaces that show vibrant mint luster thru attractive light champagne toning. The strike is incredibly precise and there are no noteworthy marks.
Frosty beige-white luster and a great strike on this near-Gem Bust Dime. The surfaces are fresh and original and nearly mark-free.
