    1802 Dime, Choice AU
    JR-4, Low-Mintage Issue

    1802 10C AU55 NGC. JR-4, R.4. Light golden-brown and dove-gray patina drapes this high-grade Draped Bust dime. Noticeable luster glows from the legends and devices, and striking weakness in the centers is characteristic for the type. Minor rim marks are present at 5 o'clock on each side. The low mintage of 10,985 pieces is divided between four very scarce to rare die marriages. JR-4 is recognized by the placement of star 8, further from the Y than on any other variety of the date. Another diagnostic is the lowest reverse star, which touches both tips of the eagle's beak. Just three other examples of this date have been graded as AU55 by NGC, and only there are only three other pieces specifically identified as an example of the JR-4 variety. Across all four varieties of this date, NGC has graded a mere six coins finer, as of (10/10).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 236K, PCGS# 4472)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
