    Rare 1804 13 Stars Reverse Dime
    JR-1, R.5, VF20

    1804 10C 13 Stars on Reverse VF20 PCGS. JR-1, R.5. The LIB is closer than BERTY, and star 7 is distant from the L. The long, straight flag atop the 1 touches the lowest curl, and the 4 in the date is plain, lacking serifs on both the crossbar and base. The 13 Stars reverse is one that was first used on the 1802 BD-2 quarter eagles, then the 1802 JR-4 dimes, then the 1804 13 Stars quarter eagles, BD-1, and finally on the present 13 Stars dimes.
    The 1804 13 Stars dimes and quarter eagles are each rarities within their series, and it is estimated that perhaps only 50 examples exist today of the dimes. (The 1804 dimes are rare as a date in any case, as the 1804 14 Stars dimes, JR-2--the only other pairing known for the year--are even rarer.)
    This piece shows gray-gold patina on each side, with original surfaces that are relatively unabraded but show the moderate wear expected. A couple of elongated rim cuds run from the obverse rim above star pairs 1-2 and 3-4. We note a couple of thin scrapes behind the hair and one across the neck. There is a planchet indent on the reverse, below I in UNITED. All major details are present on both sides, save for mostly weak dentilation and star 4, which shows only a partial vague outline. Population: 1 in 20, 12 finer (6/10).(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 236N, PCGS# 4474)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
