    1802 JR-4 Dime, Unc Sharpness
    Scarce in All Grades

    1802 10C JR-4, R.4 -- Rim Damage -- PCGS Genuine. Unc Details. A jagged, Mint-related planchet flaw to the right of 2 in the date is the initial culprit, although an attempt to repair the flaw at the opposing reverse rim may be the ultimate reason PCGS declined to give this coin a numeric grade. Regardless of variety, 1802 dimes are scarce -- just 10,975 pieces were struck, and perhaps 175 to 225 examples survive in all grades and varieties.
    JR-4 is the fourth and final variety, and a scarcity in circulated grades. It is rare in Mint State, with fewer than a dozen such pieces known. This example is prooflike in the fields beneath canopy of multicolor toning. Pale-blue, peach-gold, and reddish-orange patina predominates on both sides. The strike shows a bit of central weakness, and the undamaged areas of the periphery are sharp. Mint luster remains beneath the attractive toning.
