Description & Analysis

Starting this year the transition from the Reich designs to the Kneass interpretation of them was more or less complete. As with the 1828 dimes, however, some of those date 1829 represent a compromise between the old style and new styles. The new reverse has a finely beaded border and narrow rims, yet three die marriages included the old style reverse with its broad denticles. Again, the Mint was not going to discard useable dies just because they were obsolete in style.

The published mintage figure above is for calendar year 1829, but it's believed that additional pieces were struck with this date during 1830. Mint State examples of the more common varieties survive in good numbers, but few of these qualify as gems.

Six obverses were paired with no fewer than 11 reverses to produce a dozen die marriages of 1829 dimes. These vary according to the size of the figures in 10 C.

Common varieties include JR-2, -4 and -7. More scarce are JR-1, -3, -8 -5, -6, -8, -9, -11 and -12. The scarcest die marriage is JR-10, the highly sought Curled Base 2 variety.

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.
