Attractive light silver-gray throughout with a dash of russet-rose in the fields. Clean surfaces from brief circulation, with no nicks or scratches worthy of note. The strike is better than average for this final year of dimes of the Draped Bust design. Remarkably, this die pairing produced over 100,000 1807 dimes (some of the 1807 released dimes are believed to have been dated 1805). Furthermore the reverse die was first used to coin quarter eagles of 1805, 1806/4, 1806/5 and 1807, as the dies were the same size and the quarter eagle and dime series often shared common reverse dies in this period. The left hand stars are softly impressed as nearly always seen, as the dies had clashed multiple times and been lapped to remove most of this evidence. Clashing is noted in the left obverse field from the branch and eagle's wing. Most dies of this era lasted on average for 11,000 strikes, this singular reverse die beat those odds considerably buy striking possibly as many as 110,000 to 165,000 coins.
