    Choice VF 1804 14 Star Reverse Dime
    JR-2, Ex: James Stack

    1804 10C 14 Stars on Reverse VF35 PCGS. Ex: James Stack. JR-2, R.5. The reverse distinguishes the JR-1 and JR-2, the only two varieties for the year and each rare in an absolute sense; the former has a reverse with 13 stars below the clouds, while the latter displays 14 stars in that constellation. The JR-2, 14 Star Reverse is less frequently encountered in the numismatic marketplace, though the assessment of Davis, et al. in 1984's Early United States Dimes 1796-1837, which considered the JR-2 twice as rare as its JR-1 counterpart, may have overstated its rarity somewhat.
    This richly toned Choice VF example is pleasingly detailed for the grade and fundamentally appealing. Slate-blue, silver-gray, and mocha elements converge on each side. Apart from a few small abrasions in the fields, the surfaces are generally smooth. For the JR-2 variety, Population: 1 in 35, 5 finer (6/08).(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 236P, PCGS# 4475)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
