    1820 JR-6 Dime, MS64
    Notched Star Variety

    1820 10C Medium 0, JR-6, R.3, MS64 PCGS. The Notched Star variety. Apparently the star punches were left over from earlier times when John Reich was at the mint, for this was his trademark on most of the dies that he created. There is a small scalloped portion missing on one of the star points. Since dimes had not been minted since 1814 this would be a logical use of the earlier punches before the mint ordered new punches later this same year. This deeply toned example exhibits shades of gray-green in a rather even fashion over each side. Well defined at the border areas, some slight softness shows at the centers. There are no mentionable marks or abrasions and the dies have rotated about 45 degrees counterclockwise. Population for all 1820 varieties: 32 in 64 (2 in 64+), 25 finer (12/19). (Variety PCGS# 38786, Base PCGS# 4493)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
