    1805 Draped Bust Half Dime, MS62
    JR-1; Wide A's, Five Berries

    1805 10C 5 Berries, JR-1, R.3, MS62 NGC. Just two varieties are known for the 1805 issue, the most available date of all the Draped Bust dimes. The JR-1 die pair is scarcer than the JR-2 Four Berries variety -- particularly in high grades -- but variety collectors have a relatively easy time completing the 1805 sequence. Attractive Mint State examples are not so readily found, making this lustrous MS62 coin extremely desirable for both series and type collectors. Peach-gold and lemon-yellow tones predominate over the iridescent surfaces. The strike is a trifle soft at the centers and a short scrape beneath the right (facing) wing define the grade. Eye appeal is excellent. Census: 4 in 62, 3 finer (12/14). (NGC ID# 236R, Variety PCGS# 38768, Base PCGS# 4478)

    Weight: 2.70 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
