    1829 Capped Bust Dime, MS66
    Medium 10C, JR-12 Variety
    Finest Certified at PCGS

    1829 10C Medium 10C, JR-12, R.3, MS66 PCGS. A substantial mintage of 770,000 Capped Bust dimes was produced in 1829, with 12 die varieties known for the date. This coin represents the JR-12 variety, with a Square Base 2 in the date and a Medium 10C in the denomination. The obverse die had been used before to strike the JR-8 and JR-9 varieties of this date. The reverse die was later used to produce the JR-6 variety of 1831 and the JR-1 variety of 1832.

    The present coin is a spectacular Premium Gem, with sharply detailed design elements throughout. A short die crack passes from the rim through the 8 in the date and another travels through stars 11 through 13. The well-preserved surfaces are blanketed in shades of bluish-gray and sea-green toning, with satiny mint luster underneath. Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (7/19).
