    1797 JR-1 Dime, MS62
    16 Stars Obverse
    Condition Census Quality

    1797 10C 16 Stars, JR-1, R.4, MS62 PCGS. CAC. When we offered an MS62 NGC specimen as part of the Ed Price Collection in August 2008, we wrote that it was the second or third finest known behind an MS63 NGC coin that we handled a decade earlier. Since then, we have handled one piece graded MS64 NGC and a PCGS-certified MS65 in the 2013 FUN Auction. From examination of the auction records, it appears that only two or three finer pieces are known. This lovely specimen is easily in the Condition Census. Both sides are bright and lustrous with light silver surfaces and faint blue and gold toning. The strike is slightly weak in the centers, but nicely centered. The surfaces have few blemishes and excellent eye appeal. Population: 3 in 62, 4 finer (10/14). (NGC ID# 236C, Variety PCGS# 38748, Base PCGS# 4462)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
