    1796 Dime, AU50
    JR-1 With Distinctive Die Cud

    1796 10C AU50 PCGS. CAC. JR-1, R.3. Among the six varieties of 1796 dimes, the JR-1 and JR-6 are considered the most generally available. Specialists theorize that the JR-1 may have been the first delivery of 14,520 dimes dated January 18, 1796, making this pairing the first dime made for circulation in the United States. The obverse shows a rim cud near star 1, while the reverse has a leaf terminating below the O in OF--a pairing unique to this variety. This piece has light, grade-consistent wear, as expected, most apparent on the eagle's breast, legs, and head, but most of the detail remains in other areas. Light golden patina covers both sides. The die cud has enveloped the lowest two points of star 1. In this later die state, an arcing die crack shows plainly in the obverse field, before the face.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 236B, PCGS# 4461)
