CHOICE COLLECTOR GRADE 1798 DIME WITH CAC APPROVAL

JR-4, R-3. Large 8, designated by PCGS.

There are four distinct varieties of 1798 Dimes: two overdates and two normal dates; one with a Small 8 (which is rare) and the more available Large 8. This variety is scarce in the EF and AU range, especially with natural color.

This is an uncommonly original example with deep gunmetal color which is underscored by soft multi-hued pastels. The strike is somewhat irregular as is typical for the variety but the surfaces are choice and this piece hasn't been scrubbed to an unnatural brilliance as have so many 1798 Large 8 Dimes.

Only one PCGS EF45 1798 Large 8 Dime has crossed the auction block since 2002 and this brought $6,463 as Heritage 2013 ANA: 3483.

This variety is very difficult to find in affordable collector grades and this very pleasing Choice EF should garner considerable attention amongst specialists.

CAC has approved just this one coin in EF45 with 10 finer.
