Ron Guth:

In 1854, the U.S. Mint at Philadelphia continued producing Dimes in large quantities (in this case, 4,470,000 coins). Thus, the 1854 Dime is an excellent value for the collector, as it is one of the most affordable examples of this short-lived type. Mint State examples are plentiful, particularly in MS63 and MS64. MS65 examples are slightly more rare, but are still available. MS66 examples ar truly scarce, and any 1854 Dime in grades above MS66 is a condition-rarity. The best 1854 Dime of which we are aware is the NGC MS68 that sold in 2009 for $25,300.

Dime researcher Gerry Fortin has identified twelve different die marriages used to produce 1854 Dimes. One of the die pairs (F-111) was used to strike both Mint State and Proof examples.
