    1811/09 Dime, JR-1, MS62
    Low-Mintage Overdate Issue

    1811/09 10C JR-1, R.3, MS62 PCGS. Golden-gray toning with violet, blue, and russet accents covers the obverse. The reverse has mostly violet-gray patina. Each side features crisply defined central motifs with typical softness on a few of the stars, the denomination on the lower reverse, and the arrowheads. This is a pleasing, still-lustrous representative with no overt abrasions. Housed in a green label holder.

    Variety: JR-1, R.3. All 1811 dimes were struck from a single die pair, featuring the 11/09 overdate. This is a late die state representative with a shattered reverse.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS reports two in MS62 and 15 finer; NGC shows three in MS62 and 14 finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The Mint was an unprofitable, resource-limited venture in its early years, and employees sought any and all ways to reduce the facility's costs. In the case of the 1811 dime, an unused 1809 obverse die was expediently altered by overpunching the final two digits in the date. A total of 65,180 1811/09 dimes were produced. Breen (1988) explains that "on late impressions from shattered dies, the numerals 09 within 11 are hard to see." The underlying 0 is clearly visible on this Uncirculated offering, while the 9 under the final 1 is less obvious.

    Provenance: Purchased from RARCOA (2/1997). (NGC ID# 236V, Variety PCGS# 38772, Base PCGS# 4487)
