    Possibly the Finest Known "1827/5" Dime, MS 66 PCGS

    1827/5 10C MS 66 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. JR-1, R.2. Dove-gray and orange-russet toning is noted on both sides, but the central reverse is nearly brilliant. There are brighter rose and blue undertones on the obverse and both sides are moderately prooflike. The striking incompleteness is largely confined to stars 1-7, the hair above Liberty's forehead, and the lower reverse portrait. Although listed as 1827/5 in the 2001 Guide Book, this variety is more accurately described as 1827/7 as the last digit in the date is boldly repunched. Since Davis, Logan, Lovejoy, McCloskey, and Subjack (Early United States Dimes: 1796-1837) list six coins graded AU 55 through MS 65 in their Condition Census for this variety, the present example is probably the finest known survivor of the JR-2 die marriage. This coin is housed in a deluxe PCGS presentation holder.
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers & Merena, 5/96), lot 1076, where it realized $19,800. (NGC ID# 2375, PCGS# 4505)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
