    1796 Dime, JR-6, AU53
    Outstanding First-Year Small Eagle Type Coin

    1796 10C JR-6, R.3, AU53 NGC. Luster beckons from the design when this pearl-gray and silver-blue Small Eagle dime is rotated beneath a light. The coin is surprisingly unabraded aside from a hair-thin mark on the eagle's neck. Eye appeal is excellent.

    Nine die varieties of 1796 dimes are known, one of which (JR-7) is known only from a single low-grade example. The year 1796 was the first instance of dime production and one of just two dates that bore a Small Eagle reverse. Its Heraldic Eagle successor is substantially more available, mostly due to comparatively high mintages for the 1805 and 1807.
    Ex: Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 6/2008), lot 705. (NGC ID# 236B, Variety PCGS# 38747, Base PCGS# 4461)
