    Frosted MS66 1837 Capped Bust Dime, Probably the Finest Known of the Variety

    1837 10C MS66 NGC. JR-3, R.2. While a fairly common variety, especially in lower grades, this is most likely the finest example known. In the JR reference, the finest that had been seen at that time (1984) was an MS63 in a dealer's stock. This is an extraordinary piece. The surfaces show soft, frosted mint luster and each side is brilliant except for a faint ring of golden around the obverse. Fully struck throughout, the surfaces are problem-free, as one would expect from a coin in this grade. Struck from a later state of the dies with a pronounced die crack from the lower rim through the 7 in the date continuing on to the band between the T and Y in LIBERTY. Population: 6 in 66, 0 finer (11/02). (NGC ID# 237H, PCGS# 4529)

    Weight: 2.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
