Description & Analysis

1801 is the most often seen date for dimes 1800-04, but it is exceedingly rare in Mint State. The published mintage figure almost certainly includes more than 9,000 pieces delivered March 16 of that year that were dated 1800. Thus, the reconstructed mintage for 1801-dated dimes is probably comprised of the 8,120 delivered September 30, the 14,190 delivered December 1 and the 3,070 delivered December 26.

A single obverse was paired with two reverses, JR-1 being slightly more available than JR-2 (photos). As is typical of this coin type, weakness at the centers is often seen. This may have resulted from sinking of the dies due to improper hardening. The Mint had great difficulty cooling the dies evenly, and this affected the relative hardness from one point to another.
