    1800 JR-2 Dime, Sharp MS62
    Excellent Eye Appeal

    1800 10C JR-2, R.5, MS62 PCGS. Just two die marriages exist for the 1800 dimes, both sharing the same obverse with different reverses. JR-2 is the later die stage of the obverse, paired with a reverse that shows field star 12 clamped between the beaks of the eagle. The same reverse is later employed on the 1801 JR-1 dimes. A die break and lump between 1 and 8 in the date confirms the JR-2 obverse.

    As a variety, JR-2 is slightly more available than its 1800 JR-1 counterpart, but only in lesser grades. All Mint State 1800 dimes are rarities. This MS62 example is exceeded by only a handful of specimens at PCGS. Dappled amber-gold toning intermixes with lilac and bright-silver areas on the obverse, while the reverse is a bit more toned in the same shades. A strong strike on the devices counterbalances lightly abraded fields. Star 1 is spindly from die lapping. This lightly toned example offers nice eye appeal and is an important opportunity for the advanced early dime specialist. Population (both varieties combined): 4 in 62, 4 finer (10/17). (NGC ID# 236H, Variety PCGS# 38755, Base PCGS# 4470)
