    1804 Dime, Fine 12
    Rare JR-2 Die Pair, 14 Stars Reverse

    1804 10C 14 Stars Reverse, JR-2, R.5, Fine 12 NGC. Ex: Hilt Collection. The 1804 is perhaps the single most elusive date in the Draped Bust dime type, and JR-2 is the rarer of the two die varieties. Most known examples are well-circulated, and high-grade pieces are extreme rarities. This is the second use of both dies, the obverse having been previously employed for JR-1 and the reverse for the 1804 BD-2 quarter eagle production. The cross use of tail dies between the dime and quarter eagles during this period was common practice, as the two denominations shared the same reverse design and were roughly equal in diameter.

    This mid-grade representative shows strong central detail for the grade, but grows a little weak around the extreme outer peripheries, as usual. Consistent lavender-gray toning blankets each side, and the surfaces are smooth and problem-free. A collectible example, suitable for either date or variety representation.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
