Can You Figure Out the Year of This Bust Dime?

Steve sent in another dime for our sleuth work.  He doesn't know the date of this coin and hopes a sharp-eyed reader might be able to decipher the year or possible years that this coin could have been minted. If you click on the image, it should cause your internet browser to open up a much-larger version of the image.


  1. I would say it is an 1831 Rev.B, making it a JR2 or 5. Scroll begins under space between E1 and D. Scroll ends just left of center of M. 'I' in moto centered under T3. Serif of S2 over rt. upright of U. Other telling signs is M above E3 and upper serif of D recut to left.
    The 1831 is the only dime that has all of these characteristics. Nice looking love token. Rick A.

  2. I agree that it is 1831 reverse B. Probably JR2 since there is a lack of reverse deterioration.
