    1800 Dime, CAC-Approved AU53
    Rare JR-2 Die Pair

    1800 10C JR-2, R.5, AU53 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Indiana Collection. Both 1800 dime varieties are scarce, although JR-2 is the scarcer. Official Mint records show that 21,760 dimes were coined and delivered in March 1800, the entire production for the year, but these may not have all been dated 1800. The next delivery of dimes -- 9,260 coins -- came in March 1801, although that coinage may have included dimes struck with the 1800-dated dies. The low survival rate of this issue suggests that the mintage may have been smaller than the reported 21,760 coins in 1800.

    This piece is nicely detailed and has gold and iridescent toning over light gray surfaces. A few faint hairlines and other tiny abrasions are evident but of little concern. This is a highly appealing example. Population (both varieties included): 4 in 53, 18 finer (6/17).
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2006), lot 490; Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2009), lot 76.
