Ron Guth:

JR-1 is one of two different die varieties of 1801 Dimes. Both varieties are scarce to rare, with the JR-1 being the more common of the two. When Davis et al wrote about this variety in 1984, they noted that it was scarce in VF30 or better and they described it as "Of [the] highest rarity in MS-60 (not more than two known)." Not much has changed in the intervening years. We now know of three Mint State examples, the finest of which is the NGC MS65 formerly in the Norweb and Gardner Collection and which sold in 2014 for $111,625. The second finest example (PCGS MS63, illustrated above), ex Waldo Bolen, was last seen in 1995 -- it is the plate coin in “Early United States Dimes, 1796-1837”.

This variety shows a spine (or raised die line) on the reverse running up into the field from the upper right tip of the shield. This anomaly can be seen even on low-grade examples and is diagnostic of the variety.
