||1827 10C MS66+ NGC. CAC. JR-12, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Perfect dies, as always. The JR-12 die marriage is a common one, but the variety has one peculiarity: Neither die was used in any other pairing for the year, making identification easy. This Premium Gem offers superlative surfaces and preservation that make it far more than a mere Bust "type" coin. Deep luster complements the silver, gold-amber, and purplish-blue patina that is more prominent at the rims. The sole finest certified JR-12 at NGC; second-best is one MS65 Prooflike (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 @ $7.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
