Description:
Rare Gem Proof 1834 Capped Bust Dime, JR-5
1834 Capped Bust Dime PR65 NGC. JR-5, R.7 as a Proof. The large, imperfect 4 in the date has the crossbar largely broken off, with a tiny, sharp fragment clinging to the right of the upright. The digit 4 is closer to the lowest hair curl than to the denticles. Star pairs 8-9 and 10-11 are close. The reverse shows an arrow shaft extending though the middle talon of the claw; the last A touches an arrow and C.
The JR-5 die pairing is common among business strikes, but the 1834 dimes of any variety are rare as proofs, with an estimated eight to 10 pieces known. (The proof 1834 dime in the King of Siam proof set is a different variety; at least three varieties are known among the few proofs.) This attractive Gem proof offers excellent preservation overall, with pretty purple-gray and bluish-gray patina more intense at the rims. The strike is full throughout. An appealing, interesting, and rare coin. Census: 3 in 65, 1 finer (11/10). (NGC ID# 27D6, PCGS# 4556)
