    Description

    1829 MS 63 NGC. JR-1, R.4. While reasonably obtainable in circulated grades, JR-1 1829 dimes are very elusive in mint condition. Previously, the finest known was a Brilliant Uncirculated specimen in Allen Lovejoy's collection (Stack's, 10/90). Similar to this piece, that coin also displayed reflective fields. This coin is fully prooflike and is quite an impressive example. There is just a bit of striking softness noted on the central design elements on each side. A few field marks are also apparent, the most obvious of which are in the exergual area above the date. Almost brilliant, there is just a bit of light reddish-brown patina on each side. We believe this is the finest example known of this rare variety, and suspect it will eventually find its way into a high grade collection of Bust dimes. (NGC ID# 2378, PCGS# 4511)
