1798 Large 8 Draped Bust Dime, MS63
JR-4, Strong Eye Appeal

1798 10C Large 8 MS63 PCGS. Gold CAC. JR-4, R.3. Weakness at the left stars is typical of the variety, but elsewhere the coin is sharp with nice hair strand definition and a bold eagle. Only a few small abrasions are seen, none distracting. Exceptional variegated toning displays vivid shades of azure-blue, lilac, and orange over lustrous, silver surfaces.

Variety: JR-4, R.3. Die State: A late state of both the obverse and reverse dies, with notable die cracks on both sides of the coin. Diagnostic obverse die cracks are clear, plus an additional major crack bisects Liberty from the ear curls to the 9 in date. The eagle is broken at the left wing, where a cudlike flow fills the die crack at the rim. Other smaller, radial cracks exist.

Population Data (5/14): PCGS has certified three coins in MS63 and six finer examples. NGC shows eight coins in MS63 and seven finer. This is the only 1798 dime in any grade to receive the CAC gold sticker.

Heritage Commentary: All 1798 dimes are considered rare in Select Mint State or finer. This example earned the seldom-issued CAC gold label for high-end quality, undoubtedly for the attractiveness of its toning and the strong supporting luster.

Provenance: Pre-Long Beach (Goldberg, 5/2006), lot 1689.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 236E, PCGS# 4466)
