    Lustrous Near-Gem 1805 4 Berries Dime, JR-2

    1805 10C 4 Berries MS64 PCGS. JR-2, R.2. Late Die State. A spine from the flag of the 5 protrudes upward into the bust. LIBERTY is unevenly spaced, with LIB close and ERTY more distant. Star 7 is far from L, but star 8 virtually touches Y. On the reverse, stars 3 and 9-12 are aligned, and star 13 touches the back of the eagle's neck. The obverse die crack from the rim through ERTY is documented in the John Reich dime reference, but not so the prominent reverse die crack, where that reference demurs to "none seen" regarding die defects. Notwithstanding, the bold crack joins stars 10-11 and thence to the scroll above (UNU)M. The usual "patchy rust marks" around D are also noted.
    This is a marvelously appealing near-Gem, with silver surfaces lightly tinged with gold and radiant luster throughout. (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 236S, PCGS# 4477)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
