Lot 2711
1821. Small Date. PCGS graded MS-62. CAC Approved. Frosty with mottled light antique toning. A few faint hairlines and some die clash ghosting here and there. Bust dimes were struck in very limited numbers. The major silver denomination in use in the 1820s decade was the half dollar. Dimes had to compete with worn foreign silver coins which were plentiful and perfectly acceptable to the merchants and populace for money purchases. Pop 3; 10 finer, 6 in 63, 3 in 64, 1 in 66 (PCGS # 94496) .
Estimated Value $1,400 - 1,500.

1829 Capped Bust Dime. NGC graded MS-64. Well struck and toned here and there. A pleasing to describe array of natural toning hues enhance the surfaces of this handsome lustrous Capped Bust Dime. A small region of striking weakness is seen at the eagles right claw and an arrow feather, but the present prize is still extraordinarily bold and beautiful. Pop 33; 30 finer, 20 in 65, 8 in 66, 2 in 67.
Estimated Value $2,100 - 2,200.

Lot 2714
1836 Capped Bust Dime. PCGS graded MS-62. A well struck frosty mint example with hints of light gold toning. The advent of Close Collars in 1828 (as opposed to Open Collars prior to that year) tended to standardize the size and improve the strike characteristics of dimes and other denominations. However, it wasn't until after 1836 that the mints installed their first steam driiven coining presses (PCGS # 4528) .
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,100.
