Gem 1835 JR-9 DimeTied for Finest Known1835 Capped Bust Dime. JR-9. Rarity-2. MS-65 (PCGS). CAC.A subtle medley of olive and gold iridescence accents the peripheries the of this handsome Gem. The surfaces are otherwise brilliant and richly frosted, showing uniform luster over the devices and in the fields. Fully struck and originally preserved, an splash of deeper patina near star 12 on the obverse will certainly help to trace this piece through future cabinets.Though boasting a generous mintage for the type of 1.4 million coins, only nine die marriages are known for the 1835 Capped Bust dime. None of these nine are particularly scarce in an absolute sense, though most become condition rarities at the Gem Mint State grade level. The current example offers the pinnacle of preservation for the 1835 JR-9 variety, sharing the top spot of the Condition Census with at least four other examples certified MS-65, including the Joseph C. Thomas example. With virtually undisturbed surfaces and strong eye appeal, it is difficult for us to imagine a more desirable piece.Provenance: From our Baltimore Auction of March 2014, lot 5222.PCGS Population (all die marriages of the issue): 19; 7 finer (MS-66 finest).PCGS# 4527.
