    1798/7 Dime, JR-1, MS61
    16 Stars Reverse, Lustrous Fields

    1798/97 10C 16 Stars Reverse, JR-1, R.3, MS61 NGC. Medium lilac and sea-green colors embrace the obverse, and the reverse is also naturally patinated in golden-russet hues. Shimmering luster rolls across this undisturbed early dime. The coin is a bit softly struck on the central reverse, although other areas of the design are crisp, especially the right side obverse stars. Limited in grade by prominent mint-made adjustment marks on the portrait and date.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2005), lot 6361; Dallas Signature (Heritage, 12/2005), lot 421. (NGC ID# 236F, Variety PCGS# 38750, Base PCGS# 4468)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
