    Amazing 1800 JR-2 Dime, MS65
    Third Finest Known

    1800 10C MS65 NGC. Ex: Ed Price Collection. JR-2, R.5. Both sides exhibit minor die rust, but no other signs of die deterioration. The date is wide with the 1 far from the curl, and the final 0 nearly joined to the drapery. Star 12 is solidly joined to the eagle's beak, diagnostic.
    Fully lustrous and frosty silver surfaces are visible beneath original gray-brown surfaces with hints of blue, gold, and iridescent toning on each side. Slight weakness is evident at the centers, as usual, with all other details boldly defined. Traces of minor strike doubling appear at the right side of the reverse. A few insignificant marks are evident on the obverse. The combination of strike, luster, and originality will capture the connoisseur's attention.
    Four obverse dies and three reverse dies were linked to create six die marriages dated 1798 to 1801. The chain includes one quarter eagle and five dimes struck in the following order: 1798 BD-2, 1798 JR-4, 1800 JR-1, 1800 JR-2, 1801 JR-1, and 1801 JR-2.
    This is only the fifth auction appearance of the present piece since it was offered in the January 1985 Superior sale of the Jerry Buss Collection. In 1993, the cataloger wrote: "Only once in a great while does a coin of this caliber pop up on the market, and it will likely disappear into another collection for many years." Those words were written more than a decade ago, and are equally appropriate today.
    Ex: Superior (1/1985), lot 509; Jim Matthews Collection (Superior, 1/1993), lot 267; Ed Price Collection (Heritage, 7/2008), lot 1423, which realized $74,750.
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
