Owner's Comments

jR-3, CAC ex. Bareford pedigree. Imagine going to the US Mint in 1836 and handpicking a dime and preserving it for all these years - this coin would fit that description.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1836 Dime is a common date, with ample supplies of both circulated and Mint State examples to satisfy most collector demand.  The strike quality on this date is above-average; only rarely will the stars appear weak.  Most Mint State examples fall into the MS63 to MS64 range.  Gems are scarce and anything above MS65 is rare.  The finest certified example is a single PCGS MS67+.
