Description & Analysis

The non-overdated varieties of 1798 comprise JR-3, having a Small 8 in its date, and the Large 8 JR-4. The latter is the most often seen die marriage for 1798 dimes, while JR-3 (photos) is rare. All 1798 dimes are quite scarce in Mint State.

JR-4 is of interest in that its reverse die was used for quarter eagle coinage, as well. The 1798 BD-2 quarter eagle features this very same reverse.
