    1797 13 Stars Dime, JR-2, AU55
    Very Scarce in Any Grade
    Extremely Elusive in Mint State

    1797 10C 13 Stars, JR-2, R.4, AU55 NGC. Beautiful blue and violet hues intermingle on each side of this still-lustrous coin, showing some lighter dove-gray notes on the high points of Liberty's bust, the eagle breast, and the wing tips.

    Variety: JR-2, R.4, the 13 Stars obverse paired with the sole reverse used for the 1797 dimes.

    Population Data (7/14): NGC reports four AU55 submissions of the JR-2 with two finer, an AU58 and an MS65. PCGS reports three JR-2 in AU55 with three finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 13 Stars dimes are just a trifle rarer overall than their 16 Stars counterparts, struck earlier in the year before the Mint reverted to the "original 13" star scheme. Mint State examples are decidedly more elusive, making this Choice AU coin a tempting value proposition.

    Provenance: Purchased from Harry Laibstain (10/2007). (NGC ID# 236D, Variety PCGS# 38749, Base PCGS# 4463)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
