    1796 Draped Bust Dime, MS62
    Popular First-Year JR-1 Variety

    1796 10C MS62 NGC. JR-1, R.3. The variety is attributed by the die cud break at star 1, and the two leaf points under the left foot of the A in STATES. The silver-gray surfaces have just a touch of faint olive and violet color around the obverse borders, while similar colored toning that is a shade darker visits the right border of the reverse. Sharp detail is seen on most of the design elements, save for weakness on the eagle's breast and legs. The border dentilation is clear on both sides, and the design features are nicely centered on the planchet. Short adjustment marks (as made) are located in the lower portions of Liberty's hair. The surfaces are generally devoid of significant abrasions, but do display a somewhat subdued luster and restricted areas of light porosity and die rust. Census: 21 in 62, 58 finer (8/15).
