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.
