Gem Mint State 1809 JR-1 Dime1809 10C MS65 NGC. JR-1, R.4. Only one die pairing is known for the 1809 dime, which is expected considering that only 51,065 pieces were struck. This mintage proved to be the lowest of the Capped Bust type, which was introduced in 1809 and in use until 1837. The dime was one of the last denominations to embrace new designs from John Reich, although the Capped Bust half dime had to wait until 1829, long after Reich had left the mint.
Medium golden-orange patina illuminates this satiny and unmarked Gem. The left side stars are soft, but the remainder of the designs are precisely brought up aside from a couple of soft letters in UNITED. A spindly die crack connects Liberty's nose to star 5. This crack merges with a second, vertical crack on the neck to form a small die break on the cheek. Census: 3 in 65, 0 finer (4/07).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 236U, PCGS# 4486)
Weight: 2.70 grams
