    1797 Draped Bust Dime, AU58
    JR-2, 13 Stars, Knobbed 9

    1797 10C 13 Stars, JR-2, R.4, AU58 PCGS. A glimpse of golden-rose highlights in the fields adds life to this silver-gray early dime, with subtle mint luster still visible at the margins. Only three Uncirculated examples are known to exist with the 13 Stars obverse, assuring this near-Mint coin ranks in the top six examples known of the JR-2 variety.

    Some granularity on Liberty's portrait is not unusual for the date. Otherwise, the obverse strike is bold and the surfaces are smooth with no significant marks. The reverse strike on the eagle's breast is typically soft, with even the best specimens showing weak feathers and flatness of strike on the eagle. This is an attractive, high-grade example of the Knobbed 9 type and a challenging, high grade for an advanced collection. Population: 1 in 58, 2 finer (12/14). (NGC ID# 236D, Variety PCGS# 38749, Base PCGS# 4463)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
