    1807 JR-1 Dime, MS64
    Highly Attractive, Upper-End for the Grade

    1807 10C JR-1, R.2, MS64 PCGS. Mint records report a mintage of 165,000 dimes in 1807, all delivered in the first two quarters of the year. However, only one die variety is known for the issue, and it is possible that about 40,000 to 50,000 of coins delivered in the first quarter were actually dated 1805. If accurate, though, this smaller mintage for the 1807 dime obviously did not affect its high-grade survival, as it is still the most plentiful variety of the Heraldic Eagle type.

    The reverse die for the 1807 dime was previously employed for several quarter eagle coinages, specifically varieties of the 1805, 1806/4, 1806/5, and early 1807 issues. Its use for the dime of 1807 is its final use, as the quarter eagle and dime both underwent design changes in 1808 and 1809, respectively.

    The present coin shows the usual clash marks on each side, though neither die is cracked, evidence of this piece having been struck early in the production run. The central devices are boldly struck, though the left obverse and reverse borders are poorly defined due to slightly uneven striking, as is normal for this issue. The centers exhibit pale golden-gray toning, while the margins show deeper aquamarine and olive-gold hues. The surfaces are unusually clean for the grade, giving this piece exceptional eye appeal. Population: 20 in 64 (1 in 64+), 12 finer (10/14). (NGC ID# 236T, Variety PCGS# 38770, Base PCGS# 4480)
