    Select 1798/97 16 Stars on Reverse Dime, JR-1

    1798/97 10C 16 Stars on Reverse MS63 PCGS. JR-1, R.3. A satiny and beautiful stone-gray representative with refreshingly clean surfaces. The strike is generally sharp for this early type, aside from minor softness on the top half of the shield. Little if any attempt was made at the Mint to efface the underdigit 7, since its base and both upper points are visible. Tennessee's admission as the 16th state inspired the equivalent number of reverse stars, which crowd the field between the clouds and the banner. On the JR-2 variety, which shares the same obverse die as JR-1, the reverse star count is reduced to 13, with lesser aesthetic effect since the stars are unevenly spaced relative to JR-1. All four 1798 die marriages receive separate Guide Book listings, due to differences in reverse star counts and the size of the final 8 in the date. Population: 10 in 63, 6 finer (3/09).

    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.
