    Choice AU 1805 Four Berries Dime

    1805 10C 4 Berries AU55 PCGS. JR-2, R.2. The last two issues of the Draped Bust dime series, dated 1805 and 1807, create some troubles for the serious numismatic student. The primary challenge surrounding these issues is a determination of the actual mintage bearing the two different dates. Mint records conveniently break down the mintage as 120,780 dimes in 1805 and 165,000 in 1807. The problem is that there are two known varieties for the lower mintage 1805 issue, and just one variety for 1807. None of these varieties are rare, although the first 1805 variety is much scarcer than the second variety of the year. Both 1805 JR-2 and 1807 JR-1 are about equally plentiful, thus it appears that about 10% to 15% of all 1805 and 1807 dimes known today are examples of 1805 JR-1, and the balance is equally distributed between the other two varieties. If this logic is valid, actual mintages were about 35,000 of 1805 JR-1, and 125,000 each of the other two varieties.
    This example is remarkable for its excellent eye appeal. The surfaces are mostly brilliant with reflective ivory luster and peripheral iridescent toning. A faint die crack is visible through ERTY. Pleasing quality with pristine silver surfaces.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 236S, PCGS# 4477)
