The Capped Bust Dime was minted from 1809 to 1837. The 1809 Capped Bust Dime is a rare coin, with only 51,065 dimes minted. Other dates have much higher mintages, with the exception of the 1822 Capped Bust Dime, with a production of just 100,000 dimes. Capped Bust Dimes were heavily circulated in commercial transactions of the day. 

Capped Bust Dimes from 1809 to 1828, known as Variety 1 Wide Border, are scarce in extra fine condition and better. Variety 2 Capped Bust Dimes have a uniform diameter as a result of new mint equipment. They are more readily available and uncirculated Capped Bust Dimes from this period in certified holders from PCGS or NGC are often carried by this rare coin dealer.
