Many collectors collect the early dimes by Capped Bust only. In circulation strikes, finding MS65 is a challenge. The proofs are even tougher. What is the largest mintage of any coin in this set? Believe it or not, it's 20 coins! Some of the dates have never been certified by PCGS in any grade (such as 1820 and 1836) and every date is (obviously!) a great rarity in the Proof format. A few spectacular examples survive, though, such as the 1834 in PR67 from the King of Siam set and a few others. Completion of both circulation strike and proof is more than a challenge; it is nearly impossible!

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
