    1797 13 Stars Dime, AU53
    JR-2, Rare Second-Year Variety

    1797 10C 13 Stars, JR-2, R.4, AU53 PCGS. The second and final Small Eagle date has a reported mintage of 25,261 pieces. Two die varieties are known, the 16 Stars JR-1 and the 13 Stars JR-2. Both are listed as Rarity-4, but the 13 Stars variety is clearly rarer, especially in higher grades. The present example is stone-gray save for occasional small tan-brown freckles. Luster fills the eagle's wings and outlines the letters and wreath. The eagle's breast is smooth, but other design details are bold. Close inspection shows only a few wispy obverse marks. Population: 1 in 53, 7 finer (2/21).
    From The Gibney Family Collection.
