    1829 Large 10C Dime, JR-2, MS67
    Tied for Finest Known

    1829 10C Large 10C, JR-2, R.2, MS67 PCGS. CAC. Although not truly rare, JR-2 is one of the less often seen 1829 dime varieties in Mint State grades, and it is the only die pairing in the Large 10C type. Of the different denomination size types, the Small 10C is the most frequently encountered in Mint State due largely to a high number of varieties that comprise that type; the Medium 10C type closely follows, with the Large 10C variety (JR-2) rare in Uncirculated condition and the Extra Large 10C variety (JR-1) almost unobtainable at this level.

    This magnificent coin is not only one of the finest JR-2 dimes known, but it is also tied with just four others as the finest 1829 dime certified at PCGS, regardless of variety (4/15). Both sides show irregular splashes of deep aquamarine and violet toning over light champagne surfaces, while close study with a loupe fails to reveal any discernible abrasions. Minor striking weakness is noted on the eagle's head and talons and select hair curls, not unusual for the issue and type. An outstanding coin that will impress the most discerning numismatist. (NGC ID# 2378, Variety PCGS# 38840, Base PCGS# 94511)
