    1796 JR-2 Draped Bust Dime, MS62
    Heavy Clash Marks

    1796 10C JR-2, R.4, MS62 PCGS. This satiny MS62 JR-2 dime is among the finer examples of the variety that we have offered in recent years -- only about 10% of all surviving 1796 dimes are from the elusive JR-2 die pair. Both sides show prominent clash marks but no evidence of die lapping. The obverse has minor rim crumbling at 10 and 2 o'clock, consistent with the late die state. An attractive example, this piece has muted silver luster and splashes of delicate gold toning. Trivial hairlines and marks are evident as expected at the grade level. The strike is generally bold, although slightly blunt at the center of the obverse and reverse where the eagle's head and breast are weak and the hair curls on Liberty's neck are poorly defined. Draped Bust 1796 dimes in general are scarce in pleasing Uncirculated condition. (NGC ID# 236B, Variety PCGS# 38743, Base PCGS# 4461)
