    Elusive 1832 Dime, JR-7, MS66
    The Eliasberg Specimen

    1832 10C MS66 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. JR-7, R.3. The 2 is high in the date, with its baseline above that of the other three digits, and star 8 is high on the cap and far from star 9. On the reverse the I in PLURIBUS is centered under the second T in STATES.
    A medley of reddish-gold, cobalt-blue, apple-green, purple, and gray patination runs over the lustrous surfaces of this Premium Gem. The design elements are well brought up, and both sides are void of mentionable marks. David Davis et al. (1984) write: "This scarce variety is perhaps the most difficult 1832 dime to locate in high grades." Census for the issue: 6 in 66, 2 finer (3/09).
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 1094; American Numismatic Rarities (10/2006), lot 78.
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 237C, PCGS# 4521)

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
