    1827/7 Dime, JR-1, MS66
    Ex: Eliasberg, Also Called '1827/5'
    Tied for Finest of the Date at PCGS

    1827 10C MS66 PCGS. JR-1, R.2. Ex: Eliasberg. Dove-gray and orange-russet toning appears on both sides, but the central reverse is nearly brilliant. Brighter rose and blue undertones dominate the obverse; both sides are moderately prooflike. Strike incompleteness is largely confined to stars 1-7, the hair above Liberty's forehead, and the lower reverse portrait.

    Variety: 1827/7, "1827/5," JR-1, R.2. Die State: A small die crack joins the bottom of the scroll below the R in PLURIBUS with the top of the eagle's beak.

    Population Data (5/14): At PCGS this piece is tied for the finest certified of the date with one other. NGC shows six in MS66 with four finer.

    Heritage Commentary: Although the JR-1 variety for many years was listed as an 1827/5 (including in the Guide Book), it is more accurately described as 1827/7. The last digit in the date is boldly repunched. This piece was described in the Eliasberg catalog as "MS-66, prooflike; possible Proof." As with any other offering, prospective bidders must form their own conclusion, and reasonable minds may form different conclusions. The well-mirrored fields certainly show some prooflikeness, but the intent of the coiner is key, and it is difficult to fathom on early-19th century coins with such attributes. What is not at issue are the coin's many technical and aesthetic virtues.
