    1809 Capped Bust Dime, JR-1, MS64
    Few Available Finer

    1809 10C MS64 NGC. JR-1, R.4. The 1809, 1811, and 1822 Capped Bust dimes have the lowest reported mintages of the series and are generally considered the most difficult to find, especially in Select or better Uncirculated grades. Of these, the 1809 has the lowest mintage with 44,710 pieces delivered in 1809 and an additional 6,355 pieces in 1810 for a total of 51,065 for the date. It is arguably as rare in near-Gem and Gem conditions as the 1822 dime and is rarer than the 1811 issue or the 1807 Draped Bust dime in high Mint State grades.

    This example is a brilliant, frosted coin with plentiful mint luster and a touch of golden-gray toning near the rims. Known for a strong strike in the centers, the 1809 is often found weak on the stars and dentils on the obverse and with peripheral weakness at UNITED on the reverse. The current example is boldly struck in these areas. Only minor flatness exists in a few of the stars and UNITED is bold -- an important attribute when considering this condition rarity. Census: 4 in 64, 4 finer (1/14).
    From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 236U, PCGS# 4486)
