Ron Guth:

This variety of the 1804 Dime features 14 stars on the reverse, an inexplicable error on the engraver's part since the 14th state (Vermont) joined the Union more than a decade earlier. The 1804 Dime has the lowest mintage of any of the Draped Bust Dimes, and both varieties are very rare in all grades. PCGS has certifed only nine examples of this variety, all in circulated condition. The finest example is an NGC MS63 that appeared on the market in 2013.
