The first United States dime was issued in 1796 while George Washington was still in office as President. This Draped Bust, Small Eagle type was only issued for two years, followed by the Heraldic Eagle reverse of 1798-1807. The Capped Bust coins of 1809-1837 complete this series. Stepping up to the Major Varieties Set from the Classic set adds another six coins for a total of 52 pieces. Fortunately, none of the additional varieties are extremely rare, so tackling this set should not prove much more difficult than the Classic Set.
