    1797 Dime, 13 Stars, JR-2, XF40
    Stellar Old-Time Patina

    1797 10C 13 Stars, JR-2, R.4, XF40 NGC. Ex: Hilt Collection. The color on this coin is blatantly original, exhibiting deep olive-gray patina over much of each side but yielding to lighter tan-gray over the obverse relief elements. Close study with a lens reveals a bold strike that shows just slight wear over the high points of the design. The borders are crisp and the eye appeal is simply superb for the collector who appreciates that old-world look.

    JR-2 is, by a small margin, the scarcer of the two 1797 dime varieties, and becomes particularly elusive in XF and finer condition; a few Mint State pieces are known, but are prohibitively rare. This piece presents the date or variety collector with collectible, yet, high-end JR-2 representative.
    From The Liberty USA Collection, Part 2.
