    1821 Large Date Dime, MS62
    JR-5, Repunched Star Variety

    1821 10C Large Date, JR-5, R.3, MS62 PCGS. CAC. Iridescent rose and mint-green color outlines steel-gray central devices, while the borders feature copper-orange patina. The obverse shows a touch of softness on the left stars but is much sharper overall than the reverse, exhibiting incompleteness on the eagle's claws, leg feathers, and olive leaves. A minute tick under star 6 is the only mark worthy of individual mention. Housed in an old green label holder.

    Variety: JR-5, R.3. Repunching on star 3 is the quickest pickup point for this somewhat scarcer JR-5 variety. Large Date coins have a curled base 2, whereas the Small Date examples have a flat base 2.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS reports 16 in MS62 and 41 submissions finer, including all Large Date varieties. CAC has given a green sticker to just three MS62 coins and six finer.

    Heritage Commentary: Dime output soared to nearly 1.2 million coins in 1821, the first time the denomination's production total reached seven figures. Breen's Encyclopedia points out that the mintage "includes many dated 1820." In Mint State, the 1821 Large Date coins are scarcer than the lower-mintage issue that precedes it. Large Date coins are more available than their Small Date counterparts.

    Provenance: Pennsylvania Cabinet (Bowers and Merena, 11/1997), lot 461. (NGC ID# 236Y, Variety PCGS# 38795, Base PCGS# 4496)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
