I found this 1830 Capped Bust Dime at an estate sale last week. I put it up on eBay and it sold for over $150.00. I know that this dime in this condition is not worth that much. So my question is this...Is that a CUD or some sort of mint error in the upper right quadrant of the coin? Thinking maybe that is why it was fought after to such a high price. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I do not think the cud itself would give the coin that big of a premium but the cud could be a PUP for a particularly uncommon variety with a steep premium. It looks like the die break extends to the upper left star.

Yes, I noticed that as well. It kind of looks like an arrow point coming off the Cap of the Bust. Interesting that the die break doesn't seem to show in between the CUD on the rim and the end of the die break by the star. So you believe the CUD is not a CUD at all, but a PUP of another type of error?

My guess is it's a VLDS (Very Late Die State) of a known variety (I don't know Capped Bust Dime varieties); that's an absolutely terminal cud, after which very darn few coins could have been struck.

Check your buyer's history, to see what he might have bought for dimes in the past. Might give you a clue as to your coin, if he's an early dime specialist.

It is JR-6 (R-2) the most common variety for this date.


So then would you have any idea why this coin went so high in price?

BrokaToe,
Came across this discussion and thought I could finish it properly. I was the purchaser. It is actually the terminal die state for 1830 JR3. The CUD is illustrated in the new dime book (Zach et al., 2016). I am one of the coauthors and as someone pointed out a "dime specialist ". It remains in my collection. There may be one other known.
