    Description

    NGC 1805 MS Four Berries 65. JR-2, R.2. By far the most common variety of the year, 1805 dimes are also one of the most common dates of the type, and along with the 1796 and 1807, these are the three dates most frequently chosen for type purposes. This is a memorable early dime. The luster has an intense glow beneath the rich sky-blue and rose tinted toning. The striking details are especially pronounced with some definition even seen on the eagle's breast on the reverse, just lacking a bit of highpoint details on the lowest hair curls. We only see two mentionable defects on the coin. One, is a short nick that connects the rim to the 5 in the date, and second, there is a light grease stain (as struck) on the lower hair curls. We believe this is the finest known example of the Four Berry type. In the JR reference the finest specimen listed was the Meyer's coin, which was also the JR plate coin and belonged to Allen Lovejoy. This piece is noticeably superior. Population: 5 in 65, 5 finer. (NGC ID# 236S, PCGS# 4477)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
