Ron Guth:

The 1832 Dime has the fourth smallest mintage among the Small Diameter Dimes. Five other dates have larger mintages, which places the 1832 in the middle of the rarity scale. The point of this ranking is to show what a good value this date is since it can be purchased for the same price as any of the much more common dates. Mint State examples are readily available, though only is small quantities. Most Mint State examples fall into the MS62 to MS64 grade range. In MS65, the 1832 Dime becomes rare; in MS66, this date becomes a true condition-rarity. The finest example is a single PCGS MS67.

Seven die varieties comprise the entire mintage for this year.
