Here we have one of the finest known examples of this very rare Capped Bust dime variety. This example fits in at around #4 or #5 finest known per Jim Koenings 2010 photo census. It is also a newly documented example which Jim did not record in his census. The last comparable example of this variety to have sold publicy was the Kirk Gorman PCGS-35 specimen which sold for more than $7,000 in 2016. The Gorman specimen exhibits slightly more details than this present example, and both have similarly chatty surfaces. Conservatively, and because it is raw, I would safely call this present example a VF-30, if not a VF-35, and it is priced accordingly. Examples of this variety in this condition do not come up for sale more than once in every 5 or 10 years, on average. Thus, this is a rare opportunity to add a quality example of this elusive variety to your collection.
