    1837 Capped Bust Dime, JR-4, MS65
    Bisecting Obverse Die Crack

    1837 10C JR-4, R.1, MS65 PCGS. CAC. Beautiful golden-brown and forest-green shades invigorate this shimmering and needle-sharp Gem. A nearly imperceptible graze beneath the bust tip is the sole mentionable sign of contact.

    Variety: JR-4, R.1. The bold die crack bisecting the obverse between 12 and 5 o'clock provides ready identification of the obverse. The reverse shows the F in OF quite low.

    Population Data (7/14): PCGS has seen only five Gem 1837 Capped Bust dimes and four MS66 finer. NGC shows 11 in MS65 (including one MS65+) and seven finer, all MS66.

    Heritage Commentary: The Seated dimes would debut in 1837, making this the last year of the Capped Bust motif. Although the JR-4 variety is available, it is quite uncommon in high Mint State, as here; typically, collectors favor the new designs to put back, rather than the old familiar ones.

    Provenance: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008); purchased from Legend Numismatics (1/2008). (NGC ID# 237H, Variety PCGS# 38894, Base PCGS# 4529)

    Weight: 2.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
