Ron Guth: The 1805 Dime has a mintage of 120,780 pieces, the second highest of the Draped Bust series, but only two varieties comprise the entire mintage.  JR-1 has 5 Berries on the reverse and JR-2 has 4 Berries on the reverse. Both are of roughly equal rarity, though the 4 Berries reverse is slightly more common. 

The finest 1805 4 Berries reverse Dime is the amazing PCGS MS67 from the Knoxville Collection.
