    1804 JR-1 Dime, 13 Stars Reverse, XF45
    Exceptional Surfaces and Color for the Grade

    1804 10C 13 Stars Reverse, JR-1, R.5, XF45 PCGS. Two varieties of 1804 have different star counts on the reverse, with 13 Stars on the JR-1 and 14 Stars on the JR-2. Sometimes called the "Needle Beak," the eagle's lower beak is long and straight, extending entirely through the adjacent star on the JR-1 variety. The two 1804 varieties are each rare, and both are condition rarities in the series. The Draped Bust dimes of 1801 through 1804 are elusive dates that provide collectors with a major hurdle, although the three earlier dates require much less effort to locate.

    This Choice XF example combines pewter-gray surfaces with lovely reddish-gold and pale-blue toning and a generous amount of remaining mint luster. The well-defined surfaces show just light abrasions, and a tiny reverse rim bruise at 6 o'clock causes no real distraction. Only a few other scattered marks are evident. The finest JR-1 PCGS-certified pieces include: XF45 (3), AU53 (2), and AU55 (2). That service has never examined a Mint State piece, and has only seen four submissions finer than the present specimen. The NGC Census Report tells a similar tale, with a single amazing MS63 coin. Others include: XF45 (2) and AU55 (2). Those totals include possible resubmissions (5/16). Spirited bidding is expected when collectors compete for this coin.
    Ex: Superior (7/2005), lot 952; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2012), lot 3135 which realized $46,000. (NGC ID# 236N, Variety PCGS# 38766, Base PCGS# 4474)
