Description:
Appealing JR-4 1798 Large 8 Dime, MS63
1798 10C Large 8 MS63 NGC. JR-4, R.3. The lone Large 8 variety, represented here by an early die state with the obverse die crack from the rim through the Y to Liberty's nose extending lightly into the field from her chin. The reverse shows extensive die crumbling. Ostensibly the most available 1798-dated dime die pair for the year, though it is scarce in an absolute sense like its brethren. At the Select level, it also ranks as a condition rarity, and while the present coin falls just shy of Condition Census placement, it would make a desirable addition to virtually any collection.
This gorgeous survivor is richly toned with lovely deep peripheral blue that extends beyond the obverse stars and reverse legend into the fields. The centers are lustrous and bright, with a blush of rose-gold. The toning patterns on the obverse and reverse are elegantly balanced against one another. Regarding the strike, this piece is generally sharp on Liberty's curls and the eagle's feathers, but most of the stars on the obverse lack their absolute centers, as commonly seen on this die pairing. Pleasingly preserved surfaces exhibit only minimal handling marks, as expected for the grade.
For pedigree purposes, we note that there are a few faint scratches in the right obverse field, and the letters AT of STATES are connected by a tiny strike-through thread that reaches up into the post of the second T. In all respects, an important coin. For the variety, Census: 8 in 63, 7 finer (3/09).
