    1821 Large Date Dime, JR-4, MS65
    Possibly the Finest of the Variety

    1821 10C Large Date, JR-4, R.2, MS65 NGC. This lovely Gem may well be among the few finest examples known of the 1821 Large Date. The fields are bright and semiprooflike, showing reflectivity shining brightly through rich layers of blue, golden, and olive toning on each side. The strike is sharp but not full. No mentionable abrasions appear, but there is a short, angling grease stain above the eagle's eye.

    Variety: JR-4, R.2. One of seven Large Date varieties for the year.

    Population Data (7/14): PCGS shows nine 1821 Large Dates in MS65, none attributed as to variety and with none finer. NGC shows one 1821 Large Date JR-5 in MS65, but this Gem NGC coin, unspecified as to variety, seems not to appear in their current population data. The finest unattributed 1821 Large Dates at NGC are four submissions in MS64, and there is also one MS65 Prooflike. This piece thus appears tied with the JR-5 and the Prooflike piece for the three finest certified 1821 Large Dates, and the sole finest JR-4 as far as we can determine.

    Heritage Commentary: While this variety is relatively easy to locate in lower grades, it is surprisingly difficult above the XF40 level.

    Provenance: Pittsburgh Signature (Heritage, 8/2004), lot 5657, bought in; American Numismatic Rarities, 8/2007), lot 427. (NGC ID# 236Y, Variety PCGS# 38794, Base PCGS# 4496)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
