||1829 10C Small 10C MS66+ NGC. JR-7, R.1. Perfect dies, as always. The spectacular condition of this coin, from the most available of the 1829 varieties, makes this a prize acquisition for type purposes. The digit 9 is high, and star pairs 8-9 and 10-11 are distant. Stars 10 and 11 are repunched, and star 13 nearly touches the bust. The Small 10C reverse shows the period close to 10C, and the scroll ends beneath the right-bottom serif of the M in AMERICA. Meticulously preserved, sharply struck surfaces display rainbow toning including pastel pink, gold, light purple, and ice-blue. Census: 9 in 66 (1 in 66+), 2 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
