Description & Analysis

1805 is by far the most common date of this series, and it is a perennial favorite with type collectors as one of the very issues found in higher grades.

The published mintage figure is derived from two deliveries made during 1805: 67,540 in September and 53,240 in December. It can't be said with certainty which dates these coins bore. It's quite possible that the first delivery included 1804-dated dimes, while the delivery of June 1807 may have included some dated 1805.

A single obverse was paired with two reverse dies to create two die marriages. This first one having five berries (or olives) on the branch and wide letters A is the scarcer of the two, though neither is rare. A number of Mint State survivors are known, and these are highly prized.

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.
