1804 Draped Bust Dime. 13 stars. PCGS graded VF-25 JR-1, R-5. Nice origianl light toning. Very rare. Five berries on olive branch. Sharply struck and well centered for this often indifferently made variety. Beautiful warm antique gray with golden accents. Smooth surfaces, choice rims, and free of nicks and scratches. Stars 4, 5, 6 and 10 above the eagle are a trifle weak as always, although fully visible, the others more detailed. As a variety, JR-1 is about twice as common as the 14 star variety. But as a date rarity and as a condition rarity, the 1804 is the key date of this heraldic eagle type (1798-1807) since it is unknown in full Mint State. A prime opportunity for the collector of early dimes. Pop 7; 6 finer. (PCGS # 4474) .
Estimated Value $18,000 - 20,000.

Realized $24,150
