1801 10C MS62 NGC....
Fabulous JR-2 Rarity 1801 Dime, MS621801 10C MS62 NGC. JR-2, R.5. The rarer of the two die varieties for this difficult date, most easily distinguished by the leaf tip overlapping the right base of I2 and the die crack from the E in AMERICA to the shield. Although the variety is usually only found well worn and with various defects, the present piece shows few distractions other than those it left the Mint with. Liberty's hair curls are well defined, but there is some softness noted on the eagle's plumage in the central reverse. Satiny mint luster shines brightly through the light golden-rose toning that covers each side. A swath of bright cobalt-blue is seen above the date. An outstanding example of this early Mint rarity. Census: 1 in 62, 1 finer, with no coins at or above this level known to PCGS (3/09).
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 236J, PCGS# 4471)
