    1830/29 Dime, MS62
    JR-4, Very Rare in Mint State

    1830/29 10C JR-4, FS-301, R.2, MS62 PCGS. Abundant luster radiates from beneath golden-gray, violet, and russet toning. The peripheral design elements, including the stars, are sharply rendered, while Liberty's hair curls and the eagle display noticeable softness.

    Variety: JR-4, FS-301, R.2. There are two 1830/29 die marriages. JR-4 is distinguished from JR-5 by the T in STATES further left over the I in PLURIBUS. The left base of the M in AMERICA is left of the edge of the scroll.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS has seen three in MS62 and two examples finer, including both overdate varieties. NGC reports four in MS62 and nine finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1830/29 is a popularly collected Guide Book and Cherrypickers' variety that was first publicized in 1971. Initially considered extremely rare, the overdated coins are now thought to constitute approximately 20% of surviving 1830 Capped Bust dimes. Still, Mint State representatives like the one offered here are very rare.

    Provenance: Stack's (12/1998), lot 1252.
