    1796 JR-2 Dime, Choice XF
    Partially Reflective Fields

    1796 10C JR-2, R.4, XF45 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Indiana Collection. JR-2 is scarce and, like the other varieties of this date, is usually seen only well-worn or with environmental problems. This CAC-approved Choice XF example is a condition rarity. The grading services have only attributed a handful of JR-2 coins this fine, and CAC, which does not distinguish between die varieties, has only green-stickered six coins in this grade (11/17). The coin displays uniform, deep olive-gray patina with subtle hints of semireflectivity in protected portions of the fields. The strike is even and crisp, although minor softness occurs on the eagle's head and breast, and on the central part of Liberty's hair curls. Light clash marks add character to otherwise smooth, problem-free surfaces. (NGC ID# 236B, Variety PCGS# 38743, Base PCGS# 4461)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
