    Incredible 1828 Small Date Dime MS65 Prooflike

    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 being more noticeable on the reverse. The depth of the mirrored reflectivity is so pronounced that one has to 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 scattered about and the most inconsequential scuffiness is unfairly heightened by the glassy finish. Just two die varieties are known for this date, both of which merit separate Guide Book listings due to differences in the size of the date logotype and other slight modifications in the design that occurred this year. Population: 1 in 65 (omitting the prooflike and star designations), 1 finer (1/05).(#4510) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2377, PCGS# 4510)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
