    1831 JR-5 Dime, Crisply Struck MS66
    High-Quality Capped Bust Type Coin

    1831 10C JR-5, R.1, MS66 PCGS. CAC. Navy-blue, golden-brown, and magenta patina enlivens this satiny and crisply struck Premium Gem. The surfaces are immaculate aside from a few unimportant ticks in the right obverse field.

    Variety: JR-5, R.1. Stars 10, 11, and 12 are successively wider on the obverse, and the 8 is centered over a dentil. The reverse shows recutting on the D in UNITED, and the second T in STATES is centered atop the I in PLURIBUS. Die State: early, before the development of any cracks/cud atop UNITED or joining stars 1-4.

    Population Data (7/14): Without regard to varieties, PCGS has seen six submissions of the 1831 dime in MS with five finer. NGC shows 10 in MS66 and six finer. This is one of four in MS66 with the CAC green approval sticker.

    Heritage Commentary: The relative availability of high-grade examples of this late Capped Bust dime date means that pieces such as this could make an important contribution to a high-quality Capped Bust type set.

    Provenance: Fort Worth Signature (Heritage, 3/2010), lot 594. (NGC ID# 237B, Variety PCGS# 38853, Base PCGS# 4520)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
