Description & Analysis

The U. S. Mint relocated to a new facility early in 1833, and the resulting disruption led to a wild mix-and-match of old and new dies. How many of the 485,000 dimes coined that year were actually dated 1833 is unknown, and it's likely that some were dated 1832 while additional 1833-dated pieces were made in the next year or two.

Four obverse dies were paired in 10 different combinations with six reverses. JR-4, -5, -6 and -9 are common, while JR-1 and JR-10 are slightly scarce. JR-2, -7 and -8 are rare, with JR-3 being the rarest variety of the year. Why the High 3 varieties have been singled out for attention in guide books is a puzzle, as the common JR-5 marriage of this obverse brings no premium.

Mint State survivors of the more common varieties are fairly plentiful, with more than the usual number of gems certified for this coin type.

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.
