Description & Analysis

The high mintage for this date is quite misleading, and it is probably twice the number of dimes which were struck with the 1836 date. A study of emission sequences for the various dies used for 1835 and 1836 dimes proves that many of the 1835-dated pieces came after the first striking of 1836-dated dimes.

Only three each of obverse and reverse dies are known for this date. These were paired as 1-A, 2-B and 3-C, with no sharing of dies for 1836-dated dimes. Though not so noted in popular catalogs, each obverse die is distinctive---one has a Script 8, another has a Block 8, and still another has a Script 8 punched over a Block 8! Of these varieties, JR-2 is common and the others only slightly scarce.

As noted above, this date is more scarce than its published mintage suggests, though certainly not rare. Mint State pieces exist in smaller numbers than for the common 1833-35 dimes.

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.
