    1829 Curl Base 2 Dime, JR-10, R.6
    Problem-Free Fine 12 Example

    1829 10C Curl Base 2 Fine 12 PCGS. CAC. JR-10, R.6. The Curl Base 2 in the date is sufficient to make the attribution, as this very rare variety is only seen in a single die pairing with a Small 10C reverse. Even in major auctions such as our Signature sales, Heritage only sees an 1829 Curl Base 2 dime, on average, about once a year. Most of those examples are in considerably lower grades than the present problem-free Fine 12 piece. The PCGS Population Report shows 24 submissions in all grades, with the vast majority only Very Good at best. This piece is apparently the sole Fine 12 at PCGS, and only three PCGS-certified examples are finer: one Fine 15, one VF30, one VF35 (6/12). The original surfaces on this coin are largely charcoal-gray with sharply contrasting near-brilliant devices. The few scattered marks on each side are consistent with the grade, but this coin is a certainty to see spirited bidding when it crosses the auction block.
