    1837 JR-2 Capped Bust Dime, MS66
    Colorful Border Toning
    Among the Finest Known

    1837 10C JR-2, R.3, MS66 NGC. The year 1837 witnessed the replacement of John Reich's Capped Bust design with Christian Gobrecht's Seated Liberty concept on the dime. The Capped Bust dime of this date is popular as a type coin but is rarely offered in Gem or better grades. This Premium Gem JR-2 example is among the finest of any variety at NGC and PCGS. Sharp stars and devices complement unabraded satin luster, which is light golden in the centers and toned vivid aquamarine, olive, and russet around the borders. A highly appealing final-year type coin. Census (all varieties included): 8 in 66 (2 in 66 ), 0 finer (4/18). (NGC ID# AS2U, Variety PCGS# 38892, Base PCGS# 4529)

    Weight: 2.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
