    Bright 1827 Dime, JR-6
    Pastel-Toned Superb Gem

    1827 10C MS67 NGC. JR-6, R.2. This piece is undoubtedly the finest certified of the JR-6 variety. Star 6 is high and close to the lower edge of a denticle (here hidden by a gasket), the ED of UNITED is close and even at the base, and the I in the motto is under the right foot of the second T in STATES, which shows repunching at its base. This example is tied with another MS67 NGC coin for the finest known of the date.

    The surfaces display bright luster and are enveloped with delicate and variegated ocean-blue and pastel tan-beige patination. The strike is sharp, save for softness on the centrils of stars 1 and 2 and those along the right border. Minor softness appears on some of Liberty's hair curls, the eagle's neck feathers, and the horizontal lines of the upper-right shield. The vertical stripes are mostly solid, typical for the variety. Both sides are nicely preserved and reveal just a couple of wispy handling marks in the left (facing) obverse field. A magnificent coin for the Capped Bust dime specialist.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 2375, PCGS# 4504)
