    Rarely Seen Almost Uncirculated 1804 JR-1 Dime

    1804 10C 13 Stars on Reverse AU53 NGC. JR-1, R.5. The 1804 is a key date among early dimes with only 8,265 pieces produced. This JR-1 is one of the finest examples extant; in fact, it may well be tied with two others at the top of the Condition Census as indicated by the population data from NGC and PCGS. This variety is apparently unknown in Mint State, and it is indicated as probably non-existent in Uncirculated in the JR reference. Good portions of mint luster are still apparent on each side of this piece, giving the turquoise and golden-rose surfaces a vibrancy one seldom sees on dimes of this date. A few shallow crisscrossing scratches are located on the lower right portion of the obverse. Population: 1 in 53, 0 finer (7/03). (NGC ID# 236N, PCGS# 4474)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
