    It’s hard to find those that look nice. That’s a GREAT pick up!

    Yeah, I'm used to seeing them with weak/uneven strikes and non-original surfaces - if they are even straight graded, never mind CAC. When a pretty one shows up, it's either 1805 or 1807, almost without fail.

    JR-1 right? Nice dime!

    That’s a type I’m looking for. That’s a perfect look in my eyes.
    I need the dime and half dime.
    And dollar.

    Yes, JR-1, R-4. It's pathetic (and fun) when the most plentiful die marriage for a certain date is R-4. :)

    Slightly under PCGS price guide, including sales tax.

    Rrrrrrrip. Nice work.

    I wasn't meaning to Rrrrrrip, but I get your point. Any early PCGS/CAC type offered near price guides is bound to sell quickly these days.

    I have not had a great experience like that in a brick and mortar store in 20 years.

    Retired dealer and avid collector of U.S. type coins, 19th century presidential campaign medalets and selected medals. In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Wow - great coin. Congrats!

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    Nice find. I would be happy with that dime too.

    That is a beautiful example of the 1801 JR-1 ! Such a lucky find.

    I do not know much about where coins are bought in the US, besides auctions and shows, but, from your post I gather an Antiques Store is rather an unusual place. In Germany this used to be quite common.

    This is my example of the 1801 JR-2 which I bought many years ago, and which I intend to have encapsulated at some point.

    Whew, that is a great example of the JR-2, which is slightly scarcer than JR-1.

    Actually, it's macro lens photos with a proper lightbox setup... but the slab is scratched and scuffed badly, and the coin justifies a re-holder submission.
