    1830 Bust Dime, MS65
    Very Scarce JR-7, Splendid Multicolor Patina

    1830 10C MS65 PCGS. Gold CAC. JR-7, R.4. Vibrant, satiny mint luster shines through gray, gold, and multicolor iridescence on the obverse, while the reverse shows vivid shades of rose, gold, green, and lavender. This well-detailed Gem represents die pair JR-7 as a small part of the total mintage of 510,000 pieces, one of eight die varieties known for the date.

    Variety: JR-7, R.4. This very scarce variety shows star 7 pointing to the upper part of the curl and the lines of the third stripe welded at top. Stars 10 through 13 get successively closer together, as if the die maker ran out of room by having too much space between stars 8, 9, and 10.

    Population Data (5/14): PCGS lists 10 examples in MS65 and eight finer coins. NGC reports six Gem 1830 dimes, with one finer example at MS67.

    Heritage Commentary: This piece is housed in a first-generation PCGS green label holder. The Gold CAC label affixed ought to make it attractive to that collecting segment, and for many others, its splendid, original patina will certainly do the trick. The eye appeal is certainly suggestive of a higher grade.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
