Splendid 1800 JR-2 Dime, AU53

1800 10C AU53 PCGS. CAC. JR-2, R.5. Two varieties of 1800 dimes are known, and the JR-2 is slightly scarcer. Actually, both varieties are scarce, with a combined surviving population of about 250 coins in all grades. Official Mint records show that 21,760 dimes were coined and delivered in March 1800, the entire production for the year, but it would be wrong to believe that those pieces were all dated 1800 with none coined at any later date. A year later, in March 1801, the next delivery of dimes consisted of 9,260 coins. It may be the case that the delivery of 1800 was actually dimes dated 1798, and that the March 1801 delivery was actually the 1800 dimes. A mintage of just over 9,000 coins is more in line with the expected survival rate for these pieces over the years. This piece is nicely detailed and has splendid gold and iridescent toning over light gray surfaces. A few faint hairlines and other tiny abrasions are evident, but of little concern. This is a highly appealing example. Population: 3 in 53, 14 finer (3/09).
