    The Eliasberg 1802 JR-4 Dime, MS61
    Extremely Rare in High Grade

    1802 10C MS61 NGC. JR-4, R.4. Ex: Eliasberg. The backmost hair curls are under the curves of the B in LIBERTY, which is evenly spaced. Star 1 is distant from curl 2, and star 8 is far from the Y. On the reverse, the eagle's lower beak pierces star 12 (the so-called "needle" beak).
    A few light adjustment marks appear through the center obverse, invisible except with a loupe, which also reveals a few light, undistracting scrapes and abrasions. A tiny die lump appears behind Liberty's hair ribbon. The reverse is somewhat weakly struck on the upper shield and the eagle's neck. Both sides, however, retain considerable luster, along with pretty gold and blue coloration. The Eliasberg cataloger noted that this variety (graded AU55 in that sale) was "extremely rare in such high grades with not more than three Mint State examples known. Probably among the top eight to 10 finest known examples of the variety." Even with a more modern interpretation of grading standards, this piece appears well within the Condition Census for both the issue and the variety.
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 1050. (Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 236K, PCGS# 4472)
