    1834 Large 4 Dime, JR-1, MS67
    Remarkably Attractive Type Coin

    1834 10C Large 4, JR-1, R.1, MS67 PCGS. CAC. This frosty Superb Gem offers a strike that is virtually full over surfaces showing a melange of amber, lavender, and mint on the obverse, with pastel olive-green on the reverse -- a stunning example of the later Bust dimes.

    Variety: JR-1, R.1. Large perfect 4 in date, double shaft on the top arrow. Die State: later than recorded in the dime book, with the obverse die crack extending from the forward bust tip through star 7 on the left side -- not star 5 as in the reference. The reverse shows a tiny crack from the top arrowhead to the last A.

    Population Data (7/14): NGC shows five in MS67 and one MS68 for the year 1834. This piece is one of four for the year 1834 in MS67 at PCGS. The population data for the JR-1 variety are too newly established to be of relevance. CAC shows three Large 4s in MS67, including this coin.

    Heritage Commentary: The late-series Capped Bust dimes are far more available than the early years, but they are remarkably beautiful type coins when found in high grade, as this piece amply demonstrates.

    Provenance: Purchased from Legend Numismatics (6/2011). (NGC ID# 237E, Variety PCGS# 38873, Base PCGS# 4526)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
