    1835 JR-5 Dime, MS64
    Bright Prooflike Surfaces

    1835 10C JR-5, R.1, MS64 PCGS. This brilliant near-Gem is certified as a business strike, yet it exhibits many of the qualities of a proof. The fully struck and thickly frosted devices generate substantial contrast against the moderately reflective fields. However, this may simply be a first-strike coin rather than a proof. The lack of contemporary documentation from the Mint precludes a definitive conclusion from being reached. An immensely desirable example regardless of its origin.

    Variety: JR-5, R.1. This variety has a Block 8 in the date, the 5 is positioned 50% left of the curl, and the serif of the C in the denomination appears under the tip of the stem.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS has seen only 20 examples finer than this near-Gem, while NGC reports 29 submissions in higher grades. These figures include all JR varieties.

    Heritage Commentary: The description of this coin in the Dr. Carl A. Minning, Jr. Collection catalog reads: "The holder by PCGS is inscribed 'MS-64' and obviously the powers that be at that particular grading service consider it as such. However, to the cataloguer's eye the prooflike surface indicates that at the very least it is a presentation striking, and may well have been issued as a full Proof."

    Provenance: Dr. Carl A. Minning, Jr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/1999), lot 1311. (NGC ID# 237F, Variety PCGS# 38883, Base PCGS# 4527)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
