    Gem 1831 Dime, Elusive JR-2 Die Marriage

    1831 10C MS65 NGC. JR-2, R.3. Although not the rarest die variety of the 1831 Capped Bust Dime (that honor belongs to JR-6), JR-2 is not easy to locate in high grades. Writing in 1984, the John Reich Collectors Society noted that the finest known example of JR-2 was an XF40. Finer examples have certainly surfaced since the mid-1980s, but we suspect that the present Gem is one of, if not the finest representative of JR-2. This is a pleasingly original example with untoned centers and golden-tan peripheral toning that is most extensive on the reverse. The devices are fully struck, the smooth surfaces are draped in rich satin luster that glows in the fields. (NGC ID# 237B, PCGS# 4520)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
