The 1801 Dime is much like the 1800 Dime in terms of overall survival, but fewer Mint State 1801 Dimes exist today. In fact, Uncirculated 1801 Dimes are very rare and almost never nice. The finest example is the NGC MS65 Eugene Gardner example, followed by the PCGS MS63 from the Waldo Bolen Collection. After these two, the grade drops to MS61, where two or three examples exist.
Two die varieties make up the entire mintage of 1801 Dimes.
