    Superb Gem 1831 Capped Bust Dime
    Only Two Coins Certified Finer
    Scarce JR-6 Variety

    1831 10C MS67 NGC. JR-6, R.3. A large mintage of 771,350 Capped Bust dimes was achieved in 1831, with six varieties known for the date. The present coin is a representative of the JR-6 variety, with two pale gules in the shield stripes, the arrow shaft detached, and stars 10, 11, 12, and 13 successively wider apart. The JR-6 variety is the scarcest variety of the date.
    The present coin is a spectacular Superb Gem, with a full strike and brilliant, pristine fields. The mint luster is full and satiny, and the overall eye appeal is fantastic. To date, NGC has certified five coins in MS67, with one finer, while PCGS has graded only three specimens at this level, with a single specimen finer (7/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 237B, PCGS# 4520)
