The Eliasberg Specimen of the 1825 JR-1 Capped Bust Dime1825 10C MS65 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. JR-1, R.4. Sharply struck over all features save for star 6 on the obverse, this is a semi-prooflike Gem with a modest glow in the fields. Both sides are bathed in rich, original, lavender-copper and olive toning with brighter undertones evident at certain angles. There are no abrasions of note, but a hairline reverse die crack (as struck) through the bases of the ICA in AMERICA and some die rust (also as produced) in the reverse field below the eagle's beak are noted. In his May 1996 sale of Eliasberg's Capped Bust Dimes, Bowers states that the present coin is either the finest or second finest known example of JR-1. PCGS reports only five 1825 Dimes of all die varieties in grades at or above the MS65 level (5/02). (NGC ID# 2374, PCGS# 4503)
