    1796 JR-1 Dime, MS66+
    Usual Die State
    Condition Census Specimen

    1796 10C MS66+ NGC. CAC. JR-1, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. There are seven different die varieties known for the first year of issue dimes and six of the seven varieties are known in Mint State grades. The JR-1 die marriage is listed first in the standard reference, although its order of striking is unknown.

    The Eric P. Newman specimen is a sensational example with eye appeal that is second to none, exhibiting gorgeous olive-gray patina on the devices with vivid orange, violet, and steel toning nearer the borders. Heavy clash marks are noted in the fields of this piece that is the same die state as the MS64 Ed Price coin that we sold five years ago. The Newman specimen ranks high in the condition census. NGC has chosen the Newman coin to illustrate the 1796 dime on their NGC Coin Explorer website.

    Nearly all known examples of JR-1 have a heavy rim break that partially covers star 1. A small number of pieces are known from a perfect obverse die, and those are invariably in low grades. Most survivors are middle die state pieces with the rim break covering two points of star 1, and with moderate clash marks in the obverse fields. The rim break remains constant in later die states as the clash marks become stronger. Census: 9 in 66 (1 in 66+), 2 finer (10/13).

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
