    Stunning 1796 Dime, MS64 NGC

    1796 10C MS64 NGC. JR-1, R.3. Considered the most common 1796 Dime variety, but still very elusive in high grades. According to the authors of EUSD, "about 40% to 45% of all 1796 dimes" are represented by this variety. This is undoubtedly one of the finest examples known. It is difficult to imagine a coin with more flash and eye appeal than this stunning piece. The devices are generally very well brought up, except on the highest portions of the design, i.e., the hair curls over the ear and in the center of the eagle's breast. The fields are bright and prooflike, as is sometimes seen on examples struck from the JR-1 dies. Generally brilliant with a couple of diagonal toning streaks across Liberty's neck. An absolutely stunning Early Dime.
    Ex: Superior (8/02), lot 1577.
