    Not mine.

    JR-2 4 Berries variety if the label is correct.

    I know she's in rough shape, but might be what I can afford on my meager budget. Seems to be in better shape (or currently a more reasonable price) than most of what I can find for sale on any coin dealer website.

    VG8
    Edit: after a look at photograde I think I'm too high. Live and learn. The reveal will be interesting.

    I would give it a net grade of Good. Some design aspects have VG sharpness, but minor defects lower the grade.

    Having said that it would be a great addition to a Good or better type set.

    G4 ....maybe a details grade (looks like scratches and some damage on the reverse)

    G-4 don’t like that cut mark on the reverse I like the original surfaces though

    I believe early US coins in lower grades with minor issues will be net graded. My min grade for any US coin is VF35 (yes, I am a coin snob) so I don’t even dare to guess :)

    These are tightly graded. The dimes often show really nice hair detail like this even in AG03. This one may have gotten a bump to G04, however. But I'll go with AG03 CAC worthy.

    @C-B-D nailed it.

    I have a lot to learn about this series... going by the ANA grading standards, I really thought I saw enough detail to be G-4 (as many of you did).

    I still think that she still looks nicer than most similarly-graded coins that I'm seeing out there right now, though.

    Looks like a candidate for re-grade/re-consideration

    Yes, thank you for that. Hard to believe that coin is only About Good!!! But again, I had little or no idea about the grading process of these things. I should just sit back, watch and learn! :banghead:

    I would call the obverse Good but the reverse only AG. Have to call it AG.

    Most of the early coins that the TPGs have graded at the low numbers are atrocious. I think that AG-3 is bit low for this dime. These coins were struck without a protective rim to shield the tops of the letters on the reverse from wear. Some weakness in those areas is to be expected on a well-worn example.
