Stunning 1814 JR-1 Dime, MS671814 10C Small Date MS67 NGC. JR-1, R.3. The Mint produced three distinctly different 1814 dimes as recorded in the Guide Book. The Small Date that is offered here is JR-1, the Large Date includes JR-2, JR-3, and JR-4, and the so-called STATESOF variety with the legend crowded together is JR-5. None of the five varieties are particularly rare, but the first and last are Guide Book types with only one die pair, placing added demand on the variety.
This brilliant silver piece has sensational luster with bold central design elements and frosty surfaces. The peripheries, especially along the right side of the obverse, are somewhat weak as always on this die combination. Both sides have hints of champagne toning that add to its overall eye appeal. Pristine surfaces are entirely free of distracting flaws or blemishes. Both sides have faint clash marks that are somewhat indistinct due to die flow. A quarter century ago when the JR dime book was published, the authors were only familiar with six pieces that graded MS60 or better, and they stated that MS60 was the finest they had seen. Today, we are aware of many more than six Mint State coins. However, we are unaware of any other examples that can meet or beat the quality of this coin. Prior to the present offering, the finest we have offered in any of our sales was an MS65 coin that appeared in our August 2006 sale. Census: 1 in 67, 0 finer (3/09).
