Ron Guth: In 1804, the Coiner at the US Mint used two different reverse dies to produce Dimes. The most obvious difference between the two dies is the number of stars on the reverse in the field above the eagle. The first variety (JR-1) has 13 stars; the second variety (JR-2) has 14 stars. Both varieties are rare, , but he 14 Stars variety enjoys a big premium over the 13 Stars variety in top condition. The highest 13 Stars graded by PCGS include two at the AU53, with none finer. Any example of an 1804 Dime is the mark of an advanced collection.
