    1829 JR-10 Dime, VF30
    Rare Curl Base 2 Variant

    1829 10C Curl Base 2, JR-10, FS-301, R.5, VF30 PCGS. The base of the 2 is distinctly curved on this obverse die that is known in combination with a single reverse, and only about 50 examples are known from the die marriage, mostly in VG and lower grades. John McCloskey is credited with the discovery of the Curl Base 2 in 1973. The finest known example grades at the top of the VF range, and just five other lower level Very Fine coins are thought to exist, including the present piece that is a recent discovery. Rich blue and steel toning in the fields accents the light gray devices of this pleasing piece. Both sides show trivial handling marks that are consistent with the grade. This is an extremely important offering for the advanced Capped Bust dime collector. (NGC ID# 9BHH, Variety PCGS# 38836, Base PCGS# 4512)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
