    1823/2 Large E's Dime, MS63
    Richly Toned and Sharply Struck, JR-3

    1823/2 10C Large E's, JR-3, R.2, MS63 PCGS. CAC. Primarily toned in deep, steel-blue patina, each side of this Select coin displays glints of lighter ice-blue and golden-tan color that provide it with considerable aesthetic appeal. The stars have full centers, and the other devices are equally well-defined. Pleasing luster and minimal marks further the appeal.

    Variety: JR-3, R.2. The Large E's variety shows the E's in UNITED STATES higher than the adjacent letters. JR-3 can be distinguished from the only other Large E's variety (JR-2, R.5) by examining the position of star 7, which points to the top of the L in LIBERTY on this variant.

    Population Data (9/15): This is one of seven MS63 examples at PCGS with 10 finer submissions.

    Heritage Commentary: After only 100,000 dimes were struck in 1822, the Mint ramped up production and accomplished a run of 440,000 coins in 1823. All 1823 dimes are overdates, as the dies from the previous year were reused with a 3 punched over the last 2 -- a common resource-conserving practice in those days. PCGS estimates that fewer than 20 Large E's dimes survive in mint condition.

    Provenance: 60th Anniversary Sale (Stack's, 10/1995), lot 319. (NGC ID# 2372, Variety PCGS# 38804, Base PCGS# 4499)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
