    Key Date 1804 Dime, AU55
    13 Stars on Reverse, JR-1

    1804 10C 13 Stars on Reverse AU55 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 one other as the third finest known; near 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.
    This impressive dime was previously sold as part of the James Stack Collection, by the Stack's auction company of New York; and later by American Numismatic Rarities, where it was partially described as follows: "A rarity in any grade, and in high demand not only as a collectible silver issue of this magic date but also the key date of the early dime sequence. ... This specimen comes from the James A. Stack collection, a lesser-known pedigree in the grand scheme but an important one to those familiar with the overall quality of that fine cabinet. Off the market for more than a decade, and now offered to a new generation who have longed for the chance to find this rare dime in superb grade." Census: 2 in 55, 2 finer (3/09).
    Ex: Stack's (1/1990), lot 12; American Numismatic Rarities (7/2003), lot 342.

    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 236M, PCGS# 4474)
