Capped Bust Dimes - Date Set, Business Strikes

A set of Capped Bust Dimes complete by date is a fun task containing 20 coins over 28 years. These beauties grow on you quite quickly, particularly in higher grades. They cover a part of American history where a lot occurred and having a coin of that era can be a fine commemoration for the collector.

Capped Bust Dimes came from either open collar from 1809 to 1828 or closed collar minting process from 1828 to 1837. There is an overlap of these methods in 1828. Early dime production was erratic - no dimes dated 1810 were struck and none were minted in 1812, 1813, 1815-1819 or 1826. There are two designers for this series - John Reich and William Kneass. Many Bust coin collectors like John Reich's work but William Kneass "introduced an innovative new coining method as part of a long-range project to improve striking quality, wearability and stacking characteristics." Compare for yourself to see your own opinion of the difference over those years and enjoy the coins!

Rating: The weighted average of all coin grades (i.e. aggregated sum of each coin grade + CAC premium multiplied by its rarity factor divided by the sum of all rarity factors). Missing coins are included and assigned a grade of 0. This metric is the basis for order rank.

Complete: The number of coin entries divided by the total number of coins in the Set.

Weighted Grade: The weighted average of all coin grades (see calculation above), but excluding any missing coins.

%: The ratio of coins certified by CAC (either green or gold sticker). Calculated as the number of CAC coins divided by the total number of entered coins.

Rarity Factor: The rarity assessment for each date/variety uses the Sheldon scale of R1 through R8 with a R1 weight being the most common while an R8 weight being the most difficult to locate. Rarity estimates are by John Okerson.
