Description & Analysis

Typically with early Mint records the published figures for a particular calendar year are not a reliable guide to the number of coins bearing that date. In the case of 1802, however, just a single delivery occurred on July 22, and from this is derived the number included here.

Four die marriages are known for 1802 dimes. Two obverse dies were used, but each of the marriages had a different reverse.

None of these varieties are common, but JR-4 (photos) is the one most often encountered. JR-1 is the rarest, the second example known having been discovered by NGC in 2013. This variety shares a reverse die with the 1802 BD-3 quarter eagle and the 1803 JR-1 dime.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
