    Near-Mint 1800 Draped Bust Dime
    Rare JR-2 Variety

    1800 10C AU58 NGC. JR-2, R.5. Only 21,760 Draped Bust dimes were minted in 1800, with two varieties known for the date. The present coin is a representative of the less available JR-2 variety, characterized by the wide A's in the reverse legend. As a date, the 1800 dime is more elusive than any other early dime issue except the 1804. Coins in AU58 are decidedly rare in today's market. Currently NGC has graded only three coins in near-Mint condition, with five finer, while PCGS has certified five examples in AU58, with seven finer (7/10).
    The present coin is well detailed, with only the slightest wear showing on the design high points. Both sides display mottled dark gray toning, with hints of gold and blue. The surfaces are free of adjustment marks, and no mentionable distractions are evident.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 236H, PCGS# 4470)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
