    Desirable JR-3 1837 Capped Bust Dime, MS66

    1837 10C MS66 PCGS.CAC. JR-3, R.2. Of the four 1837 varieties, two share the same reverse, JR-3 and JR-4. The JR-3 variety is distinguished by the obverse that is common to JR-1, JR-2, and JR-3, which shows star 7 pointing to the top of the curl. While JR-3 dimes are fairly common in circulated grades, they are scarce in Mint condition. Only nine coins have been certified in MS66 of all varieties by both of the major services and none are finer (3/09). This is a splendid coin that shows luxuriant mint luster and is virtually free from toning. The striking details are sharp throughout, and there are no mentionable or noticeable marks on either side.
