1824/2 Flat Top 1 vs Pointed Top 1 Capped Bust Dime Varieties - Difference and Comparision
There were two major versions of the 1824 Capped Bust Dime. Both of them actually have the date 1824 stamped on top of the 1822 date or an overdate error. The difference between the two varieties is in regards to the words "10 C." (10 cents) on the bottom of the reverse of the coin. One variety will have a flat-topped styled "1" while the other will have a pointed-topped styled "1". The "Pointed Top 1" variety is considerably rarer and more valuable.

Below is a depiction of the 1824/2 overdate error where the 4 is stamped on top of the 2. Small parts of the underlying "2" can be seen around the outsides of the "4" as depicted by the arrows in the example image below:
