    Popular 1796 JR-6 Dime

    1796 10C JR-6, R.3.--Improperly Cleaned--NCS. XF Details. Pale golden-gray toning in the central areas deepens to blue at the rims. On the obverse, a die crack connects the numerals 179 in the date with a branching crack from the rim through the 9 to Liberty's drapery. On the reverse, a die crack from the rim at ten o'clock extends between the letters ST in STATES to the eagle's neck. Identifiable by a nick on star three, another spanning stars four and five and a porous area located on MER of AMERICA. The 1796 ranks as a favorite with collectors for several reasons: It's the first year of issue for the ten-cent denomination, it features a desirable two-year design type, and it has a scant mintage of just 22,135 pieces.
