A few months ago, I picked up an 1820 Capped Bust Dime for around $20. I already had both the large and small date 1820 dimes, so I only needed the "statesof" variety to complete my 1820 set. Lo and behold, I find this dime just waiting to slot right into my book.

The first indication was the die state on the obverse at 9 o'clock. I think that is called a die bulge (correct me if I'm wrong), and it is characteristic of the 1820 "statesof" variety - specifically lower grade coins. Second, the top of the 1 in 10 C. is flat in this variety, and the only other 1820 dime that has a flat top 1 is the 1820 JR-8. Finally, as you can faintly make out under the scope, the final s in states is right next to the o in of.

I'm curious to hear if any of you have a "statesof" variety in your collection (or any other neat bust dime/quarter/half dollar varieties). If so, I'd love to see some pictures.

Nice work with the diagnostics! Although I would have a hard time myself buying a coin for the variety, when I can't even see the variety. Hopefully GERMANICVS will stop by and post some of his capped bust coins. He had a post where he showed his bust dime varieties a couple weeks ago.

Here are two 1814 JR-5's, STATESOF variety.

I think this variety shares the same reverse as 1820 STATESOF.

im working up a set of capped bust half dimes as we speak. I took pictures of each of the statesofamerica dimes from the set.

the reverse die is the same die on both coins according to the davis, logan, lovejoy, mccloskey and subjack book.

coinenthusiast - you are correct that the thing at 9:00 on the obverse is a die bulge.




i like large cents. I currently have >225 Sheldon varieties and >235 middle date Newcomb varieties.
