    Impressive 1821 Large Date Dime, JR-5
    MS66, Likely Finest Known

    1821 10C Large Date MS66 NGC. JR-5, R.3. The JR-5 die marriage is not particularly rare, but it is seldom found in Mint State grades. This impressive Premium Gem presents an outstanding opportunity for Bust dime specialists, as it is almost certainly the finest known of the variety. It is also near the top of the Condition Census among all varieties of the date, as NGC has certified only a single MS67 finer (unspecified as to variety), including both Large Date and Small Date variants. The finest 1821 Large Dates/JR-5s at PCGS are in MS65 and AU58, respectively.
    The obverse has frosty luster gleaming beneath intense gold, rose, and sea-green toning across the entire surface. The reverse has an untoned area at the center, surrounded by deepening rings of similar colors. For the date, Census: 3 in 66, 0 finer (4/09).
    Ex: Heritage (7/2006), lot 602, which brought $16,100.
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection, Part Two.
