    Finest Certified 1822 Capped Bust Dime MS66

    1822 10C MS66 NGC. JR-1. R.3, the only dies. Incredibly, we offer a significantly finer example of this prized rarity in the Capped Bust series. It is quite likely that the listed mintage of 100,000 pieces struck in 1822 may include a large majority of coins that were actually dated 1821, as suggested by Breen, and experts generally conclude that approximately 300 pieces are extant in all grades. This puts the 1822 Bust Dime in elite company as one of the most challenging issues of the denomination in the entire run of U.S. numismatics.

    Like the Select example just offered, the striking details on this finest certified business strike 1822 (the James Stack specimen was graded PR66 by PCGS) are well executed save for the lower obverse stars. Rich golden-violet and turquoise toning is seen intermittently, leaving relatively small areas of brilliance on the left sides of both obverse and reverse. The underlying luster is bright and satiny, and close inspection yields only a few paper-thin blemishes in the fields. An important offering for the specialist or for the connoisseur of finest certified rarities. Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (11/03). (Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 236Z, PCGS# 4497)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
