    Rarely Seen 1834 PR65 Dime, JR-1

    1834 10C Large 4 PR65 PCGS. CAC. JR-1, R.8 as a proof. Four obverse / reverse combinations were used to strike proof dimes from this year. Only three examples are believed known of this variety, out of an estimated 10 proofs estimated struck for the year. Undoubtedly, the source for the production of proof dimes from this year came from a letter dated November 11, 1834 from John Forsyth to Mint Director Samuel Moore:

    "The President has directed that a complete set of the coins of the United States be sent to the King of Siam, and another to the Sultan of Muscat. You are requested, therefore to forward to the Department for that purpose, duplicate specimens of each kind now in use, whether of gold, silver or copper."

    This quote obviously was the impetus for production of the Class I 1804 silver dollars and the King of Siam proof set, but it also placed added emphasis on the striking of proof coins from this year. This piece has deep blue-gray patina over each side with a slight edging of red around the peripheral devices. The design elements are fully struck, as one would expect, and there are no obvious contact marks on either side. Housed in a first-generation holder. (PCGS# 4556)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
