    1829 JR-2 Large 10C Dime, MS66
    Beautifully Toned, Interesting Die Cracks

    1829 10C Large 10C, JR-2, R.2, MS66 PCGS. CAC. A second example of the 1829 JR-2 die variety in MS66 PCGS demonstrates the wealth of material in the Gardner Collection. This piece boasts pastel moss, gold, and lilac hues, the latter more prevalent on the obverse.

    Variety: JR-2, R.2. The Large 10C reverse die. ED touch at their bottoms, and a denticle between the lower two arrows shows a curious tine of metal projecting upward into the field. Die State: Several die cracks show on the obverse. Most notably, star 1 shows three separate cracks running in different directions: one to the rim; one into the field; one to the bustline and top of 1. Another crack runs through the bottom of 9 to the rim. The reverse offers one crack, heavy, from the top of T2 to the rim, and a second from F in OF to AM.

    Population Data (3/15): This is one of two JR-2 Large 10C dimes in MS66 in the Gardner Collection at PCGS. The only finer JR-2 at PCGS is one MS67, and the finest at NGC is one MS65.

    Heritage Commentary: The depth of the Gardner Collection is amazing, and this example, a second opportunity at one of the most beautifully toned and highest-graded 1829 JR-2 dimes in existence, is another reinforcement. To cite one other example we have recently encountered, Gene Gardner had seven 1796 dimes in his collection. Seven.

    Provenance: Purchased from Joseph O'Connor (3/2002). (NGC ID# 2378, Variety PCGS# 38840, Base PCGS# 94511)
