    1814 Large Date JR-3 Dime, MS66
    Condition Census Example

    1814 10C Large Date, JR-3, R.2, MS66 NGC. Deep violet and pale peach patina with blue accents covers each side of this nicely preserved Premium Gem dime, boldly struck from late-state dies that show prominent die clashing and some moderate signs of die fatigue, most prominent in the left obverse field. Numerous die cracks appear on the reverse, crisscrossing within the shield and running from D in UNITED to P in PLURIBUS to the eagle's beak. This is an extremely attractive example, almost surely within the Condition Census for the variety at this grade level, even though it is generally available in lower grades.

    Variety: JR-3, R.2. Large Date, curl extends to right edge of second 1 in the date. No period after 10 C.

    Population Data (3/15): For all 1814 dime varieties, NGC shows 14 in MS66 with three MS67 finer. The finest JR-3 dimes at NGC are one each in MS66 and MS67. PCGS shows one 1814 Large Date dime in MS66, variety unspecified.

    Heritage Commentary: The dimes of 1814 are usually broken down into Small Date (JR-1), Large Date (JR-2, JR-3, JR-4) and STATESOF, for example in the Guide Book. Due to the fairly recent phenomenon of variety attribution at the two major grading services, the population data can be tricky and not terribly reliable, but this piece, as we suspected above, still seems solidly within the Condition Census.

    Provenance: Boys Town (Bowers and Merena, 3/1998), lot 527. (NGC ID# 236W, Variety PCGS# 38775, Base PCGS# 4488)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
