    1835 JR-4 Bust Dime, PR65
    Extremely Rare as a Proof

    1835 10C PR65 NGC. JR-4, R.7 as a Proof. While the JR-4 is readily accessible as a business strike, proofs are far rarer. The mintage for such pieces is speculative, as Mint records are incomplete for the time; certainly there are more than the two coins suggested (confirmed?) by Breen in his Proof Encyclopedia, but many estimates today put the surviving total at 10 pieces or slightly lower. This is a moderately contrasted example with light frost on fully struck devices. Broad silver mirrors frame the devices, and aside from glimpses of green-gold close to the rims, this faintly toned coin appears devoid of color. Census: 3 in 65, 2 finer (5/19).
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 2/2011), lot 5478.
