    1825 Dime, JR-2, Pristine MS66
    Ex: Eliasberg, Sole Finest at CAC

    1825 10C JR-2, R.2, MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Eliasberg. This Premium Gem 1825 dime, certified in an old PCGS green-label holder with the CAC green bean and the Eliasberg pedigree, is a coin of marvelous quality. Pearl-gray central devices cede to rose-orange in the fields and finally to glints of amber, mint, and pale blue at the rims. As expected at this grade level, there are simply no distractions on the surfaces. This piece is tied for the 1825 date with three other submissions for the finest at PCGS -- but obviously the only one with the important Eliasberg pedigree, and described in that catalog as "probably the finest known."

    Variety: JR-2, R.2. The right side of the 2 in the date is under the lowest hair curl. The E in UNITED is above the T, and 10 C is high in the field.

    Population Data (3/15): As noted above, this piece is tied for the finest 1825 dime at PCGS with three others in MS66. The finest certified JR-2 at NGC is only MS62. NGC reports four MS66 1825 dimes as finest. This is the sole (and finest) MS66 1825 dime with the CAC green approval sticker.

    Heritage Commentary: Described in the Eliasberg catalog thusly: "Superb surfaces with satiny lustre and deep rose toning gradually giving way to blue and amber at the borders. Slight weakness among central details." The piece brought $12,100 in the Eliasberg sale -- what a bargain!

    Provenance: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 1075; Goldbergs (6/2002), lot 2122. (NGC ID# 2374, Variety PCGS# 38808, Base PCGS# 4503)
