    1822 Dime, JR-1, Seldom-Seen MS63
    Key Capped Bust Date

    1822 10C JR-1, R.4, MS63 PCGS. CAC. The sandy-rose surfaces of this Select 1822 key-date dime host excellent eye appeal and a nicely executed strike, despite a few minor marks that account for the grade. Any Mint State survivor of this key issue is a trophy coin, but this example's bold strike, nice centering, and top-notch eye appeal make it a long-term keeper.

    Variety: JR-1, R.4, the last year in which but a single die pairing is known for the Capped Bust dime series.

    Population Data (3/15): PCGS reports only seven submissions in Mint State: two each in MS62 and MS63, one each in MS64, MS65, and MS66. There are 13 Mint State grading events at NGC, the finest a sole MS66. Given the likelihood of duplications, we would guess that about 15 different examples survive in Mint State.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1822 dime is a key date, constituting the last single-die-pairing year in the Capped Bust dime series. Completist collectors (and that includes most of them, we believe) eagerly vie for such prizes at auction or in any other venue where they appear. An MS65+ NGC example sold in our Chicago ANA Signature last year for $76,375. The Gardner Collection coin is certainly an example with a lot of charm and charisma.

    Provenance: Purchased from RARCOA (9/2000). (NGC ID# 236Z, Variety PCGS# 38801, Base PCGS# 4497)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
