1833 JR-2 R5 Capped Bust Dime PCGS MS62 Condition Census?

A real Uncirculated coin, with full luster and no hint of rub, friction or wear. The surfaces are clean and smooth, the strike is precise and there is even some mild prooflike reflectivity, especially on the reverse. The TrueView is what the coin looks like in hand...our pictures fall well short here. This is a rare and very desirable variety, and appears to be well in the Condition Census. For reference, the most recent Bust dime Census undertaken by the JRCS, and published in the December 2019 Journal, shows one Unc example (also a 62 and NOT this same coin), followed by a single AU50 and then two XF45's. Comparing to other 1833 dime varieties, there are the same number of examples reported as for 33 JR3 (12 coins), which is a somewhat tougher variety than this. And, in terms of the average grade reported, only the 33 JR-7 is lower than this. A tough coin, a very attractive, pleasing coin, and a coin for a serious collection of early dime varieties.
