    1804 13 Stars Reverse Dime, JR-1, VF35
    Rarest Date Among the Early Dimes

    1804 10C 13 Stars Reverse, JR-1, R.5, VF35 PCGS. Only 8,625 dimes were reportedly struck in 1804, but there is a good likelihood that some percentage of the 120,780 dimes struck in 1805 were actually dated 1804, as the authors of the standard reference to the series note. In any case, only two die pairings are known for 1804, sharing the same obverse with the 13 Stars and 14 Stars reverses. Both are Guide Book varieties and both are rare, but the 13 Stars dimes are seen about twice as often as the 14 Stars coins. This Choice Very Fine example shows the weakness on the reverse that frequently appears on the variety, so that stars 4-6 and 10 are missing; on other specimens they appear but faintly. The lower beak pierces star 12, easily identifying this variety. The grayish-tan surfaces show wear commensurate with the grade, but the only mentionable contact is a thin scrape running upward from the forward bust into the right obverse field below stars 11-13.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 236N, PCGS# 4474)
