I do not sell counterfeit Bust dimes all that often, let along hand-made die varieties, and I would be surprised if I have another to sell in the next 5-10 years.


Here is a super popular fantasy-dated example displaying the year 1838, a year after they were minted in Philadelphia.  Overall, the details on this piece are respectable with the more popular obverse side being much nicer than the reverse.


I have photographically documented just 19 examples between the 5 varieties.  This should give you some sense of how rare these varieties are especially if you are missing this type from your collection.
