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!
4 Berries. Well worn but the date is clear and the main design elements are evident. Old obverse scratch mentioned for accuracy but is truly insignificant given the grade. Overall, an attractive coin and a very inexpensive example of this scarce early type.
CAC. JR-8. Large O. Nice light silver-gray color and excellent detail. A trace of luster can be found in the protected areas.
Large Date. Well detailed with pleasing steel-gray surfaces.
Nice steel-gray color with strong detail.
Very well struck with beautiful frosty white luster. An exciting example of this scarce early 'type'!
CAC. JR-11. Nice problem-free surfaces with an attractive even steel-gray color.
JR-5. Medium 10c. Gunmetal gray surfaces with strong detail. This is a late die state example of the variety often offered as 1830/29. In this late die state little evidence of an overdate is present.
JR-8. Medium 10c. Very sharply struck with rich luster and smooth surfaces that reveal almost no marks. The color is a lovely pearl-gray with signs of gold, green, and blue. The combined NGC Census for all varieties of this date reveal just 12 coins graded higher.
Well struck with nice brilliant luster. A pleasing example of this scarce early dime.
