    Description

    One of the Finest Known 1831 JR-4 Dimes, MS65

    1831 10C MS65 NGC. JR-4, R.2. This more commonly encountered variety is most easily attributed by the spacing of stars 10, 11, 12, and 13, which are successively wider, wide spacing between ICA, and recutting on S2. The finest example listed in the JR reference is an MS63 that appeared in Auction '80. This piece is undoubtedly one of the finest pieces known. The silver-gray surfaces are overlaid with a pale iridescence that deepens somewhat around the outer devices. Proofs were also struck from this die pairing, and this piece shows a faint glimmer of reflectivity in the fields, indicating it was struck not too long after the few proofs were produced. Well struck. Population: 18 in 65, 15 finer (4/03). (NGC ID# 237B, PCGS# 4520)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
