    1836 Capped Bust Dime, MS65
    Scarce JR-3 Variety

    1836 10C MS65 PCGS. CAC. JR-3, R.3. Lovely olive-green, gold, and lilac patina embraces this lustrous and exactingly struck Gem. The surfaces show immaculate preservation, save for an inconspicuous horizontal mark above the date. Clash marks surround the major devices on each side.

    Variety: JR-3, R.3. Three die varieties exist for the 1836 dime, two of which display a Fancy 8 in the date. This JR-3 example is confirmed by the Block 8 in the date logotype, and long denticles surrounding the obverse.

    Population Data (5/14): Eight examples are listed by PCGS in MS65, with six coins certified finer - four coins in MS66, and one example in MS67. The NGC Census also shows eight pieces in MS65, with three examples in MS66 and one coin in MS67.

    Heritage Commentary: This piece is encapsulated in a small-sized, first-generation PCGS holder and is notably scarce in Gem condition. The splendid toning sets this coin apart from all others.

    Provenance: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2005), lot 5749; C.W. Collection (Stack's, 11/2006) lot 51. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 237G, PCGS# 4528)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
