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.
A beautiful rich patina with hues of lavender, blue, gray and gold covers this well detailed, lustrous early dime. A gem for the grade with super eye appeal and no marks worthy of mention. Only 34,640 minted with just 10 grading higher at PCGS. A great collector coin!
A rare date with a mintage of 10,975. PCGS and NGC combined have graded just under 100 examples. This coin is slightly two toned with dove-gray devices and lavender-gray fields. There is a touch of softness from stars 10 to 12 and a thin marks passes thru the 18 of the date. The legends and date are distinct and the overall quality and eye appeal is very solid for the date.
