    1830/29 Dime, Pristine MS66 ★
    Vivid Obverse Patina

    1830/29 10C MS66 ★ NGC. JR-4, R.2. The center obverse shows amber-gold, lilac, and plum (with a dab of cobalt-blue atop the cap) radiating toward mint-green and copper hues near the rim. The reverse is a more-demure pinkish-gold with some silver remaining, but both sides show essentially pristine preservation.

    Variety: The JR-4 overdate variety is one of three popular Guide Book-listed variants for the date, the others being the Small 10C and Large 10C types.

    Population Data (5/14): The JR-4 is relatively available even in Mint State, but an example such as this MS66 ★ NGC example is a marvel, the sole coin in that grade at NGC with a single MS67 finer. PCGS has not seen any pieces in this grade, but does report two examples in finer grades.

    Heritage Commentary: As a date, the 1830 dime is fairly plentiful in most grades, but examples of the 1830/29 overdate form a distinct minority. Interestingly, at least one proof of the JR-4 is known (which we cataloged recently in our Central States Signature [Heritage, 4/2014], lot 4102, a PR63 NGC coin), and it is possible that one or two other proof JR-4s exist, but most of the proofs are of the JR-6 variety.

    Provenance: Purchased from David Lawrence (7/2006).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 237A, PCGS# 4519)
