    Richly Toned 1814 Dime in Superb Condition

    1814 MS 66 NGC. JR-3, R.2. An outstanding early dime and undoubtedly the finest known. The Lovejoy specimen (previously considered the finest) was graded MS 65 by NGC and had a short line on the neck. Like that coin, this piece has superb cartwheel luster. Both sides are overlaid with deep smoky-violet and russet patina with sea-green accents at the margins. Generally well struck, except on the peripheral stars, there is an extensive network of die cracks in the center of the reverse. An exceptional coin and worthy of the finest collection. Population: 2 in 66, none finer (12/96). (NGC ID# 236W, PCGS# 4488)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
