    1798 Small 8 Dime, JR-3, VF35
    First-Rate Color

    1798 10C Small 8, JR-3, R.5, VF35 PCGS. The rarity JR-3 heightens the appeal of this Choice VF type coin. When acquiring circulated dimes from this period, collectors usually have to put up with at least minor problems, but not so with this coin. Wear is evenly applied and the central devices retain nearly XF sharpness. The obverse border dentils are complete and the reverse rim grows slightly weak only from 4 to 6 o'clock -- the peripheral legends are clear throughout. Striking softness is seen over the upper-right reverse, as usual. This piece is beautifully toned in original gunmetal-blue, amber, and lilac-gray patina. (NGC ID# 236E, Variety PCGS# 38752, Base PCGS# 4467)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
