Ron Guth: The 1835 Dime has the highest mintage of any Dime prior to 1838 (when the Liberty Seated design was introduced to great fanfare). Thus, collectors should have no difficulty finding a nice example of this date. Of additional help is the fact that demand for this date is not split up into two or more major varieties, as it is on many other dates in this series.
The 1835 Dime is scarce in Mint State, but not rare, and the most frequenbtly-seen grade is MS-64. Gems, on the other hand, are rare indeed, and the finest example certified by PCGS (as of October 2011) is a single MS-66.
