    Significant Choice AU 1802 Dime, JR-2

    1802 10C AU55 NGC. JR-2, R.5. An impressive piece with intricate design details throughout, aside from slight flatness on the highpoint of the shoulder. Apple-green and gold tints emerge when the coin is turned beneath a light. Luster dominates the hair, plumage, and shield. Adjustment marks are absent, and abrasions of any consequence are limited to a tick on the obverse rim at 3:30 and a short diagonal mark near Liberty's temple. Unlike its half dime counterpart, the 1802 dime is not a famous rarity. But only 10,975 pieces were struck, and these were distributed among four die pairings. More than half of all survivors are JR-4, although JR-2 is more available than the very rare JR-3 and the extremely rare JR-1. Census: 3 in 55, 2 finer (4/06).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 236K, PCGS# 4472)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
