I thought that I would bring this VLDS of the 1829 JR5 dime to the attention of other dime collectors. This is a die state later than the Logan specimen with some additional growth at the edge of the reverse rim CUD and an additional die crack from the dentil above the center of the N of UNITED down to the letter. This is in addition to the crack off the upper right edge of the E in UNITED to the rim. We don't have much information on how these late die states break up and how quickly but it would be great to get other collectors to provide images of different states of this die as it broke up. The die state is rare and I'm not certain how many are out there but if anyone is willing to share an image please send them to me at cirque1 (at) gmail.com. Thanks. I will try to put things together for an article in the JRJ at some future time and will acknowledge all who contribute.
