    Discovery Coin and Rare AU 1820 JR-12 Dime

    1820 10C Small 0. JR-12, R.6. Reiver state a. AU50 NGC. This remains one of the most difficult die pairings to obtain from the entire Capped Bust dime series. Toned with attractive silver-gray hues which darken to blue and gold at the rims. Examination with a loupe will find many short but fine scratches primarily on the obverse. The present example is within the Condition Census for the variety with a couple of other AU coins which were discovered in the past two decades.
    This is the discovery coin of the variety which was generally unknown prior to the publication of Early United States Dimes 1796-1837 in 1984. Jules purchased this coin from dealer/collector Don Frederick in 1980, who apparently discovered this new die pairing based on the sketchy variety information available prior to the publication of the variety reference for dimes.
    Ex: Don Frederick (January 1980). Envelope Included.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 236X, PCGS# 4493)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
