    Lustrous Mint State 1807 JR-1 Dime, MS63

    1807 10C MS63 PCGS. JR-1, R.2. This is the only variety for the year. From 1796 to 1805, the Mint produced 304,406 dimes from 29 different die pairs for an average of 10,500 coins per pair. From 1809 to 1828, the average number of coins per die pair was substantially higher at 92,000. Considering these statistics, what was it about the single die pair that produced 165,000 dimes in 1807? Keep in mind that the reverse die was also used to produce quarter eagles from 1805 to 1807. Walter Breen was fond of his "happy die steel" explanation. The real explanation seems to rest in the die hardening process after the dies were engraved.
    This frosty Mint State specimen is mostly brilliant with hints of gold color along the borders. The central obverse and reverse designs are sharply defined, with extreme weakness near the borders. Heavy clash marks and die bulges are evident, especially on the obverse. Population: 31 in 63, 27 finer (6/07).
