1825 DIME - JR 2
Regarding Proofs, Davis et al noted that there were "At least
seven proofs reported" for this variety, but that they had only
confirmed the existence of a single specimen (the 1981 Bareford example).
The obverse die of this variety was also used on:
1825 JR 1
This was the only use of
the reverse die.
