    1796 JR-2 Dime, AU55
    First-Year Issue

    1796 10C JR-2, R.4, AU55 NGC. Even dove-gray toning, this scarce first year Draped Bust dime also has steel-blue hues where luster remains. Richly detailed on Liberty's hair and on the wreath and the left (facing) wing, most of the eagle is typically impressed, and some swirling planchet adjustment marks on the upper reverse (as made) were not completely removed by the strike. Refreshingly void of post-strike contact, this sharp and scarce two-year type coin will be a formidable contribution to the advanced early United States collection.
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2005), lot 2064, where it brought $9,775. (NGC ID# 236B, Variety PCGS# 38743, Base PCGS# 4461)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
