    Extremely Rare 1825 JR-2 Dime, PR63

    1825 10C PR63 NGC. JR-2, R.2, R.7 as a proof. A study of auction appearances over the last 22 years indicates that there are just five or six 1825 proof dimes in existence. A single example of 1825 JR-1 was offered as a proof in 1990, and the remaining examples are all from the JR-2 die combination. Our enumeration of five known examples is presented here:

    1. JR-1. PR63. Kagin's (1/1969), lot 1482; Stack's (10/1990), lot 1624.
    2. JR-2. PR63 NGC. Bowers and Merena (3/1998), lot 528; Bowers and Merena (1/2000), lot 101; Bowers and Merena (3/2007), lot 1948. The present piece.
    3. JR-2. PR65 NGC. Heritage (3/1995), lot 5176; Bowers and Merena (8/1999), lot 92; Goldberg (2/2002), lot 472.
    4. JR-2. PR66 PCGS. New Netherlands Coin Co. (6/1953); Norweb Collection (Bowers and Merena, 10/1987), lot 429; American Numismatic Rarities (8/2006), lot 299.
    5. JR-2. PR67 NGC. George Earle (Henry Chapman, 6/1912), lot 3172; later, New Netherlands Coin Co. (12/1957), lot 382; John J. Pittman (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 555; Superior (5/1999), lot 2002; Heritage (1/2007), lot 866.

    Although the PR65 coin is sharply defined, the other three JR-2 proof dimes all have some degree of central weakness as seen on this brilliant proof. It has deeply mirrored fields surrounding brilliant silver-white devices.
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection. (NGC ID# 27CZ, PCGS# 4543)
