The 1831 Dime has the third-largest mintage of any of the Small Diameter Dimes, making it a target for type collectors looking for good value. Mint State examples are plentiful, with MS63 being the most oft-seen grade. A small number of superb example exist, including a monster MS68 that was once part of the Pogue Family collection and which sold for a record $94,000 in 2016.
Included in the total mintage are six different die varieties. Fortunately, none of the varieties is particularly rare, making it possible to put together a complete set without too much difficulty.
