Superb 1830/29 Dime Single Finest Certified by PCGS

1830/29 10C MS67 PCGS. JR-4, R.2. Most observers would call this gorgeous Superb Gem fully brilliant, but a trace of tan color is technically present along the left borders. The strike is razor-sharp on the shield, dentils, and stars, while slight softness (as made) is noted on the left border of the shield and on the eagle's neck. A number of Mint State Capped Bust Dimes do not demonstrate unbroken cartwheel luster in the fields, however, on the present example, the luster is both intense and fully penetrating. Thorough examination under a loupe fails to locate even the faintest contact on the reverse, and the obverse is nearly as perfect, and has only a trivial indication or two of contact. On this exemplary piece, the 29 underdigits are noticeable, the lower right edge of the 2 extends east of the 3, and the right edge of the ball of the 9 is detected on the lower left of the 0. Die steel was too precious a commodity in 1830 to waste a die because it bore an obsolete date, and mint policy at that time (and as late as the 1901/0-S Half Eagle) was to simply correct the offending digits in the die. The 1830/29 is scarce in all Mint State grades, and is extremely rare above the MS65 level. As of (7/05), PCGS and NGC have each certified a single 1830/29 example at the MS67 level, with none finer.(#4519) (Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 237A, PCGS# 4519)
