    1797 13 Stars Dime, XF Sharpness
    JR-2, Final Small Eagle Issue

    1797 10C 13 Stars, JR-2, R.4 -- Damage -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. The JR-2 variety is identified by 13 Stars and a Knob 9 in the date. The 1797 issue represents the final-year of Small Eagle dimes, and the date is significantly scarcer than the reported 25,261 piece-mintage implies. Perhaps some 1797 deliveries included 1796-dated dimes. This JR-2 example has an area of damage and repair at 1 o'clock on the reverse -- possibly an attempted piercing, although there is no discernible obverse damage in the corresponding area. Pleasing silver-gray surfaces merge with golden-gray at the margins, with solid XF definition on both sides.
