    Description

    Originally Toned, Condition Census 1836 Capped Bust Dime

    1836 10C MS 67 NGC. JR-2, R.2. Advanced type collectors take note--this is one of only two 1836 dimes to obtain an MS 67 grade from both major grading services and it has yet to be bettered (9/99). The obverse shows even, antique-gold patina that deepens to russet and lavender-pink hues in isolated areas about the denticles. The reverse, although largely brilliant, displays streaky russet toning throughout. All design elements are readily appreciable and the surfaces are indicative of the technical quality that defines the Superb Gem grade level. Needless to say, only a strong bid would do justice to this coin's numerous positive attributes.
    From the Richard Doyle Collection. (NGC ID# 237G, PCGS# 4528)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
