Description & Analysis

The 1804 dime has long been appreciated as a rarity within the dime series. Its published mintage includes solely those dime delivered in June of 1804, though it's very likely that some of the September 1805 delivery also bore this date. The co-authors of the JR book estimated the actual number of dimes bearing this date at around 17,000 pieces.

A single obverse die was paired with two reverses, and these are easily distinguished by the number of stars above the eagle. JR-1 features the normal 13, and it is slightly more often seen than JR-2.

Both varieties are rare overall. The JR book rates them as R-5 (31-75 known in all grades). Mint State examples are unknown, and this date is almost always seen in low grades.

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.
