Bust Dimes
We recently acquired a nice 1802 dime in PCGS VG-10 which is a choice original, an 1820 STATESOFAMERICA in PCGS XF-45 CAC, and an 1835 JR-5, both of which are very nicely toned.  We also have an 1802 in NGC AU-55, an 1803 JR-5 (the finest of 5 known of this variety), an 1809 in PCGS G-6, an 1814 Small Date in PCGS VF-20, an 1821 JR-2 in PCGS VF-20 and one in Good-5, an 1822 in PCGS G-4, an 1824/2 JR-2, an 1825 JR-5 in PCGS F-12, an 1827 JR-12 in PCGS MS-64, two of the rare 1833 JR-3's, an 1833 JR-7 in NGC AU-58, plus several other Bust dimes in collector grades.  Many of these coins would be of interest to 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.
1802 JR-2 R5 PCGS Gen., Good det., bent
A decent low-grade example of this rare early date. I didn't see a bend before I sent it to PCGS, so I don't know exactly where it is. Was $1,900.
Price Reduced
Price: $1,750
1802 Dime JR-4 R4 NGC AU-55
A nice high-grade example of the very difficult to find 1802 dime. The reverse die for this variety was previously used to strike 1802 BD-1 quarter eagles, and after the 1802 JR-4 dimes, it was used again for the 1803 JR-2 dimes. Fewer than 6 mint state examples are known of this die marriage. (This information from the Bust Dime Variety Identification Guide).

1820 STATESOFAMERICA dime, PCGS XF-45 CAC

1820 JR-12 PCGS AG-3

1822 Dime PCGS G-4
The Capped Bust dime everyone seems to be looking for. It's even more difficult to find in a PCGS holder. I'd say the obverse easily makes Good-6, the reverse is just slightly weaker, although no one would complain about this coin in a G-6 holder. 1822 dimes in PCGS holders don't last long in my inventory, so act quickly! Was $2,995.
