    1807 JR-1 Dime, Choice XF
    Remarkably Long-Lived Multipurpose Reverse Die

    1807 10C JR-1, R.2, XF45 NGC. The doughty reverse die of the JR-1 dimes of 1807 was earlier used to strike quarter eagles dated 1805, 1806/4, 1806/5, and 1807, so it is no wonder that the details on this Choice XF dime remain somewhat softly struck. This is the sole die marriage for the 1807 silver dimes, and Mint officials wanted it to last as long as possible before the Capped Bust dimes made their appearance; John Reich began working on the design on April 1, 1807, according to the JR dime book. Beautiful heather and pale blue patina appears on each side of this lovely dime, showing a few thin scrapes on the obverse. Incredibly, the reverse shows no die cracks, although the E in the motto is effaced. (NGC ID# 236T, Variety PCGS# 38770, Base PCGS# 4480)
