    Near-Gem 1821 Large Date Dime, Rare JR-2 Variety

    1821 10C Large Date MS 64 PCGS. JR-2, R.7. Writing in 1984, Davis, Logan, Lovejoy, McCloskey, and Subjack (Early United States Dimes: 1796-1837) noted that the finest known example of this rare die marriage was a VF 25 example in a Michigan collection. The authors were obviously unaware of the present near-Gem, which we unhesitatingly call the finest known survivor of JR-2. A later die state, the left obverse field displays a swelling appearance from bulging in the die. There are, however, no mentionable post-production distractions, and the strike is bold everywhere except over stars 1 and 2 and the eagle's talons. The otherwise pale gray toning scheme deepens to russet and electric-blue shades in select areas toward the borders. (NGC ID# 236Y, PCGS# 4496)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
