    1824/2 Dime, JR-1, Multicolor MS66
    Tied for Finest Graded
    Treat for Toning Enthusiasts

    1824/2 10C JR-1, R.3, MS66 NGC. A multicolor treat for toning enthusiasts, this early Capped Bust dime also demonstrates excellent preservation throughout. Pale violet, orange, gold, cherry, and blue are among the dominant colors, with some untoned silver areas in the centers. This piece is fairly well-centered, although the strike is less than absolute on Liberty's upper face and hair and the eagle's upper neck and wing feathers. There are few marks of any size. A single dark fleck on Liberty's bust at the drapery is usable for pedigree tracing.

    Variety: The scarce JR-1 variety, identified by the reverse showing the A that begins AMERICA about centered over the second U in UNUM. On the rare JR-2, that A is over the right upright of U. The two varieties share a common obverse. The JR-1 and JR-2 are also identified as the Flat Top 1 and Point Top 1, respectively. Die State: Die cracks run on the reverse from the lowest arrowhead through 10 C; from the leftmost leaf to U(NITED); and connecting the bottoms of ITED.

    Population Data (7/14): NGC and PCGS each show a sole MS66 as their finest certified.

    Heritage Commentary: No 1824 nonoverdate coins are known. No dimes were reported delivered in 1824, but numismatists believe the 1825 delivery was of the two varieties, the 100,000 pieces of August 1825 consistent with the issue's survival today.

    Provenance: Superior (5/1999), lot 2001.
