Lot 1616

1811 Capped Bust Dime. 11 over 9. PCGS graded MS-63. Lightly toned on both sides, somewhat mottled and irregular. The hair curls are particularly sharp and in bold relief on this Dime, with better than average strike on the stars that flank Liberty. Scarce early Bust Dime. While not the first year of issue (that being taken by 1809), this 1811 large size Capped Bust left specimen is very similar. A trickle of 65,180 were coined, most of which entered circulation and stayed for years. Many were subsequently melted when they became worn, others were lost to oblivion. Somehow, this one survived in Mint condition. PCGS reports 8 with 3 in MS-65 and 2 in MS-66 (PCGS # 4487) .
Estimated Value $4,800 - 5,200.
