    1814 STATESOF Dime, Brilliant MS65
    Among the Finest JR-5 Examples

    1814 10C STATESOF, JR-5, R.3, MS65 NGC. This is an all-brilliant Gem showing vibrant luster over carefully preserved surfaces. In fact, there is a distinct lack of noticeable pedigree identifiers on either side. The only potential candidate is a dark toning spot within the E of AMERICA. The devices are boldly struck with faint softness on the higher-relief curls, star 7, and the eagle's left (facing) talon. A coin of unsurpassed technical quality.

    Variety: JR-5, R.3. This is the most in-demand variety among 1814 dimes, caused when the engraver placed UNITED too high on the reverse, forcing STATESOFAMERICA to appear as a single word. Obverse 3 shows recutting on stars 3 through 5.

    Population Data (9/15): NGC reports only four submissions in MS65 and two in MS63 of this variety as the sole Mint State examples. The finest STATESOF coins at PCGS are two in AU58 and one MS62.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1814 has a mintage of 421,500 coins produced using five die pairs. The STATESOF coins are always popular with collectors and can be located in lower circulated grades with minimal searching. Examples in XF condition or better are rare, and all Mint State survivors are extremely elusive. CoinFacts suspects only five Uncirculated pieces exist. This is one such coin, tied at the top of the Condition Census. Registry specialists will undoubtedly encounter considerable competition from their peers when this lot is called.

    Provenance: Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 7/2005), lot 380. (NGC ID# 236W, Variety PCGS# 38777, Base PCGS# 4490)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
