Ron Guth: All 1809 Dimes are of the JR-1 variety.  Despite being a scarce variety and date, a surprising number of Mint State examples are known.  The PCGS Condition Census includes grades between MS-64 and MS-66, indicating that collectors preserved a fair number of high-quality coins (naturally, these are very valuable).  This trend toward the high end is misleading, as the majority of the circulated examples grade only EF-45 or less, thus any 1809 Dime in AU or better condition is quite a find.
