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. The Basic Set of 30 coins contains one coin from each year. The key dates in circulated condition include all of the early dates (the Small Eagle design of 1796-97 and the 1804 in particular) while in MS65 every coin in the collection is a challenge. Upon completion, this is a spectacular set of coins!
