Description & Analysis

Five die marriages are known for this date, one of these being an overdate which is described in a separate entry. All five die pairs were unique to their respective Sheldon varieties, with none of them being used in more than one marriage. Only S-284 is scarce enough to command some premium over the others.

1810 is one of the more available dates of the Classic Head type, but high quality coins of any date in this short-lived series remain scarce. Most examples were struck rather irregularly from worn dies that gave them poor detail definition, especially at the borders.
