    Rare 1822 Uncirculated Bust Dime

    1822 MS 62 NGC. JR-1, the only variety, R.3. The rarest and most elusive date in the Capped Bust dime series, the 1822 is a highly coveted issue in all grades. This date is rarely seen on the market today, and when encountered is usually no better than Good or Very Good. The vast majority of specimens known are low grade and a substantial number of these are damaged. Only ten or so pieces are believed extant in mint condition. This is an especially attractive specimen. The striking details are very well brought up in most areas. The hair curls on Liberty are sharply defined as is most of the plumage on the eagle. The only area of weakness is seen on the first three stars and the last one. The mint luster is slightly subdued and a heavy layer of gray-blue patina has formed over each side. An exceptional opportunity for the specialist. Population: 1 in 62, only 5 finer (6/96). (NGC ID# 236Z, PCGS# 4497)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
