    Remarkable Prooflike Small Date
    MS65 ★ 1828 Dime, JR-1

    1828 10C Small Date MS65 ★ Prooflike NGC. JR-1, R.2. Simply astounding quality for this or any other Small Size Bust dime. Basically untoned surfaces are boldly detailed save for minor softness on the eagle's neck feathers, with die clashing more noticeable on the reverse. The depth of the mirrored reflectivity is so pronounced that one must wonder if this coin was used as some type of presentation piece to show off the capabilities of the Mint's new equipment, first used in 1828. The fragile fields display a few scattered flecks of toning, and the most inconsequential scuffiness is unfairly heightened by the glassy finish. Just two die varieties are known for this date, both meriting separate Guide Book listings due to differences in the size of the date logotype. Census: 1 in 65 Prooflike, 1 finer without a Prooflike designation (3/09).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2005), lot 6187.
