Bust Dimes
We recently acquired a very rare 1803 JR-5, the finest of just 4 known specimens of this variety, plus an 1824/2 JR-2, and also some other nice Bust dimes incl. 1827 JR-9 in PCGS F-12, 1828 Large Date in PCGS F-15, 1829 JR-3 in NGC AU-58, 1829 JR-9 in NGC XF-40, the rare 1833 JR-3 in PCGS VF-20, and a very choice original 1835 in PCGS VF-25!  We recently acquired a large collection of Bust dimes in collector grades, some of which are problem coins.  Usually, I don't carry this kind of material, but a friend asked me to help him liquidate his collection quickly.  We also recently acquired decent VG 1801 and 1802 dimes, plus two 1820 JR-6, 1821 JR-10, 1825 all five JR varieties, and 1827 JR-1 and 2.  We also have an 1820 STATESOFAMERICA dime in PCGS AU-58, an 1820 JR-12 (R6) in PCGS VF-35, an 1821 JR-2 in Good-5, two nice 1825s - - a JR-3 in PCGS VF-30 and a JR-5 in PCGS F-12, an 1827 JR-12 in PCGS MS-64, and three 1829 Sm/Lg 10c, a rare (R6) 1833 JR-3 (AU details), plus several other Bust dimes in collector grades.  We have some lower grade examples of R-3 and better varieties for collectors with a budget.  We would like to acquire dimes such as 1804, 1809, 1822, and any R-6 or rarer varieties.

We also have the new book Bust Dime Variety Identification Guide, by Winston Zack, Louis Scuderi, and Michael Sherrill.  See our Books page to order this great book with free shipping.
1797 JR-2 R4 ANACS AG det., tooled, whizzed, net FR-2
Price: $950
1801 JR-1 R4 VG-8, filed rims
Coin would be slabbable except for the filed rims. Still a decent example of a tough date in early dimes, at half the price of a no-problem coin.
Price: $1,150

A decent low-grade example of this rare early date.

1814 dime PCGS AU-55 STATESOFAMERICA
JR-5 R-3. A really difficult variety in this high grade. The wonderfully toned PCGS AU-58 I had a couple of years ago sold at ANA for $16,000. Stacks Bowers just sold an AU-58 for $11,456, and I have priced this coin at HALF of the AU-58 price! Population is 2 in 55, 3 in 58, and 1 in 62 with NONE higher. And all of the AU's except this one are in collectors' hands.
