    1827 Capped Bust Dime, MS65
    Pointed Top 1, JR-4 Variety

    1827 10C Pointed Top 1, JR-4, R.2, MS65 PCGS. CAC. Star 7 points to the top of the headband and the space between two dentils, and there is a doubled dentil above U in UNITED, identifying the JR-4 variety. The 1827 Capped Bust dime claims a substantial mintage of 1.2 million pieces, with 13 die varieties known for the date. The JR-4 variety is both popular and available in lower grades, but the issue is rare at the MS65 grade level.

    The present coin is a spectacular Gem, with well-detailed design elements that show just a touch of the usual softness on the eagle's feathers and the stars on the right. The well-preserved surfaces exhibit highlights of cerulean-blue and sea-green toning, with much prooflike reflectivity in the fields. Overall eye appeal is terrific. Population (for the variety): 1 in 65, 0 finer (6/19). (NGC ID# 2375, Variety PCGS# 38814, Base PCGS# 4504)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
