    1804 Draped Bust Dime, VF35
    13 Stars Reverse, JR-1 Variant

    1804 10C 13 Stars Reverse, JR-1, R.5, VF35 PCGS. CAC. From a small mintage of 8,265 pieces, the 1804 dime is the most elusive issue of the Draped Bust series. Probably no more than 100-125 examples are extant in all grades, and the finest survivors are in the mid-AU grade range. Only two die varieties are known for the date. This coin represents the JR-1 variety, easily recognized by its 13 star reverse. The JR-1 is slightly more available than the other variety, accounting for about two thirds of all examples seen.

    The present coin is an attractive Choice VF specimen, with the left side of the drapery showing considerable wear, but much interior detail in the hair still intact. The pleasing gray surfaces display no large or distracting abrasions and no sign of planchet adjustment marks. Population: 2 in 35, 6 finer (11/15). (NGC ID# 236N, Variety PCGS# 38766, Base PCGS# 4474)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
