Ron Guth:

Breen (1989) listed two "for sure" Proof 1824/2 Dimes and one questionable example that may have been cleaned to appear as a Proof.

Davis et al (1984) wrote "Three proofs reported. Finest seen is Proof-67 (Lot 166, Stack's Bareford Sale, Oct. 22, 1981; ex. Lot 174 Numismatic Gallery's Menjou Sale, June 15, 1950)."

In 2002, PCGS certified a Proof-65 1824/2 Dime. In 2006, PCGS certified a Proof-66. Both coins were cracked out subsequently and the latter coin was graded PR67 by a competing grading service.
