Description:
Astounding Undated Bust Dime Brockage
Obverse Mirror Image of Reverse, MS64
Undated Bust Dime--Obverse Showing Mirror Brockage of Reverse--MS64 NGC. The reverse die was used to coin 1824 JR-2, 1825 JR-4, 1825 JR-5, and 1827 JR-1. The Dime Book states, "at least two reverse brockage pieces struck from this die are known to exist." We believe this is a brockage of 1827 JR-1, since clashing on OF AM is also present on the Dime Book plate for this variety. This spectacular error occurred when a dime stuck to the obverse die. This dime was then struck against a series ("at least two") of newly fed planchets. The current lot is one of those pieces, which received a strike against the reverse die and an incused, reversed impression from the reverse of the hapless obverse die cap. The significance of this satiny and smooth silver-gray near-Gem was immediately recognized, since the piece was set aside for the enjoyment of posterity.
