Scarce 1804 Dime, 13 Stars, Fine 15

1804 10C 13 Stars on Reverse Fine 15 PCGS. JR-1, R.5. Each variety of 1804 dime shares a reverse die with a quarter eagle. In the case of the 13 Stars Reverse, the quarter eagle is an important rarity, while the dime is only moderately rare. This reverse die was actually used with two different quarter eagles (one 1802 and the other 1804), as well as two different dimes (also one each of 1802 and 1804). Specifically, the emission sequence was: 1802 Breen-2 quarter eagle; 1802 JR-4 dime; 1804 Breen-2 quarter eagle; and 1804 JR-1 dime. The mintage of 1804 dimes was just 8,265 coins, the lowest of this design type. The authors of the early dime book wrote: "Like its counterparts in other denominations, the 1804 dimes exude charisma."
We believe that this piece is a candidate for resubmission. The surfaces have dark steel-gray color accented by lovely lighter gold at the border, the reverse with ivory highlights. Close examination with a magnifier reveals only a few faint scratches and abrasions, all of which are nicely blended into the color. One brighter scratch is visible on the reverse, but this is hardly worth mentioning.
