||1824/2 10C MS62 NGC. CAC. JR-1, R.3. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Only two die varieties are known for the 1824 Capped Bust dime, both using the same obverse with the 4 in the date punched over a 2 (and possibly a 3). This coin exhibits a flat top 1 in the denomination on the reverse, identifying the JR-1 variety. This attractive MS62 piece is well-detailed, with a touch of softness on the eagle's neck and some of Liberty's curls. The well-preserved surfaces are enhanced by vivid shades of pink and champagne-gold toning. Census: 7 in 62, 12 finer (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $35.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
