    1829 Capped Bust Dime, VG8
    Elusive and Desirable
    Curl Base 2, JR-10 Variety

    1829 10C Curl Base 2, JR-10, FS-301, R.6, VG8 PCGS. CAC. A substantial mintage of 770,000 Capped Bust dimes was accomplished in 1829, with 12 die varieties known for the date. This coin represents the JR-10 variety, with the Curl Base 2 in the date. The JR-10 is one of the most elusive varieties in the Capped Bust series and specialists prize examples in all grades and conditions. The variety was discovered in 1973 and most examples seen are in lower circulated grades. This was the only use of the obverse die, but the reverse was employed again in 1830, on the JR-2 variety.

    The present coin is an evenly worn specimen, with legends, date, and LIBERTY all legible. The dove-gray surfaces show a moderate number of abrasions, mostly on the reverse, with a few hints of amber toning. This lot represents an important opportunity for the series enthusiast. Population: 6 in 8, 8 finer (10/14). (NGC ID# 9BHH, Variety PCGS# 38836, Base PCGS# 4512)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
