    Popular JR-1 1820 STATESOF Dime, MS65

    1820 10C STATESOF MS65 NGC. JR-1, R.4. The STATESOF variety is one of several famous engraving blunders in early U.S. coinage. Letters in the reverse legend were improperly spaced, crowding OF between STATES and AMERICA. The first STATESOF dimes were struck in 1814. The reverse die was then placed in storage, where it gathered dust until 1820, since no dimes were struck in intervening years. The die returned to use in 1820, paired with a fresh 1820-dated obverse, to strike the scarce JR-1 marriage.
    This high grade representative has light gold and plum peripheral toning. The obverse die is sunken between stars 2 and 4, and this weakens those stars as well as the final letters in UNITED, which are opposite on the reverse. Otherwise, the strike is exceptional, and both sides are attractively preserved. For the variety, Census: 4 in 65, 1 finer (11/09).
