Description & Analysis

The great availability of 1834-dated dimes relative to the reported mintage suggests that additional pieces were coined as part of 1835's production. Mint State pieces are plentiful, with even gems being more available than for dates before 1833.

Three of the four obverse dies used for 1834 dimes bore a Large 4 that progressively deteriorated until just a nub remained of the horizontal stroke right of the vertical stroke. A single Small 4 die was used toward the end of production and is notably more scarce. These obverses were paired with six reverse dies, and the result was a total of seven die marriages for the date. JR-1, -5, -6 and -7 are common, but JR-2, and JR-4 are slightly scarce. The toughest one is JR-3, rated R-5 by the John Reich Collectors Society.

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.
