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 Classic Set adds 16 coins to the Basic Set, and includes most of the major varieties listed in the Redbook including all the Large and Small Date varieties, the variations in the number of reverse stars and berries and the large and small 10C on the reverse. While the are no extraordinary rarities in this set, the 1804s and the 13-star reverses of 1797 and 1798 will prove the toughest coins to acquire in higher grade.
