Ron Guth:

The 1796 JR-7 Dime is an exceedingly rare variety that escaped the "eagle eyes" of researchers until the fall of 2002, when Brian Greer discovered the first example. Unfortunately, Greer's find was in horrible condition, with hardly any details left, and with graffiti on the obverse. However, enough details remained to allow Greer and other experts to make a positive attribution. Greer sold his coin to Ed Price, whose collection appeared in Heritage 2008 ANA sale, where the JR-7 sold for $11,500. In early 2016, Ron Drezewcki found a second example in an a collection that he claimed had been off the market for six decades. NGC certified Ron's coin as VG8.
