    1800 Draped Bust Dime, AU58
    Rare JR-2 Variety

    1800 10C JR-2, R.5, AU58 NGC. 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. Both varieties included, NGC has certified only four coins in this grade, with just seven numerically finer, while PCGS has seen five examples in AU58, with nine numerically finer (4/15).

    The present coin is well-detailed, with only the slightest wear showing on the design high points. Both sides display mottled gunmetal-gray toning, with areas of gold and navy blue. The surfaces are free of adjustment marks, and no mentionable distractions are evident.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3073. (NGC ID# 236H, Variety PCGS# 38755, Base PCGS# 4470)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
