Description & Analysis

The entry into the Union of Tennessee in 1796 prompted the addition of a 16th star to those encircling Liberty, but it was quickly determined that this looked too crowded, and the decision was made to revert to 13 stars representing the original states. The obverse die used for JR-1 retained the 16-star configuration and made have been prepared the year before and left undated until needed.

It's believed that the delivery of 9,099 dimes on May 26 comprised the entire production of JR-1, making it slightly the more common of two varieties for this date. Nevertheless, examples are scarce across all grades and genuinely rare in Mint State.
