1796 10C MS63 NGC. JR-4, R.4....
1796 JR-4 Dime, MS631796 10C MS63 NGC. JR-4, R.4. Quite a number of Mint State 1796 dimes survive from a mintage that barely exceeded 22,000 coins. Walter Breen was fond of stating they were saved as "first of their kind" although there has never been any documentation to support such a statement, even though it makes sense.
This Select Mint State piece has excellent eye appeal. Both sides have mirrored fields and mostly sharp details except for the centers. The obverse has delicate gold with peripheral iridescence and the reverse has light champagne toning. Census: 22 in 63 (1 in 63+), 38 finer (10/12).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 236B, PCGS# 4461)
