Description:
Lustrous Gem 1798/7 Dime
16 Stars on Reverse, JR-1
1798/97 10C 16 Stars on Reverse MS65 NGC. JR-1, R.3. This is the overdate obverse with a small 8 cut over a larger 7. One of the great numismatic mysteries surrounds this issue, with 13 stars on the obverse and 16 stars on the reverse. Obviously the 13 obverse stars signify the original 13 states, and the 16 reverse stars signify the 16 states that were part of the Union when these coins were struck. Tennessee was the 16th state, admitted in 1796, and Ohio was the 17th state, but not admitted until 1803.
This is a lovely example with a generally sharp strike except on the centers and the left-side stars. Heavy clash marks are evident in the fields, with minor die chips or cracks. Light obverse die bulges are also evident. The obverse die is extensively lapped, causing much of the lower hair detail to be almost or entirely absent. Both sides have frosty luster with brilliant silver surfaces and just a hint of golden-gray toning. An attractive, highly desirable Gem. Census: 6 in 65, 3 finer (9/11).
Ex: Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 5125, which realized $43,125.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 236F, PCGS# 4468)
