Description & Analysis

The 1837 dime is moderately scarce overall as compared to earlier dates of the 1829-37 series. Its production was terminated by the introduction of Seated Liberty Dimes in the late spring. Mint State pieces are elusive, though with a higher than usual percentage of gems.

Like the dimes of 1836, the 1837 issue features elongated border beads that are more like true denticles than on the dimes of 1829-35. This resisted both erosion of the die and wearing of the actual coins in circulation.

Two obverses were paired with three reverses for a total of four die marriages. Though not noted in popular catalogs, one obverse features a Script 8 and the other a Block 8. There are no rare varieties for this date, but JR-1 and JR-2 are slightly scarce.

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.
