    This was dug in a colonial era field where I dug many other colonial coppers and reales. I'm sending this to NGC on Monday

    Beautiful coin! Voted Banner. It's very easy to rotate an image...In Windows, it's about a 1 second job. If you have a smart phone, when the phone is positioned, press the screen on the area you want it to focus and it should. Might take a few tries

    Sounds easy enough to verify with a digital scale and a 10X jeweler's loupe.

    Just out of curiosity what does "1. of crossbar of "A" in STATES." mean? Thanks.

    Great find! In the last couple of years I've found over 50 large cents, 25 colonials, Spanish 1/2, 1 and 2 reales and even found a gold coin recently, but bust silver coinage has still eluded me. Nice find! It's inspirational for the rest of us to get out there and keep swinging the loop.

    The raised mark should be on the 1st verticle line in "A' in STATES. Meaning that the crossbar is "on top" of the first line in the "A". (I Think) The weight should be 2.70 GRAMS! EXACTLY! If it ain't......It ain't authentic.

    Amazing find my friend!! You NEVER see any of those posted, not to mention the great condition. I'd grade it as having VF details at least. Killer coin Tony, and my vote for banner is going in right now.
    MY BOOK HAS SOLD OUT OF ALL 1200+ COPIES IN LESS THAN 4 MONTHS. NO 2ND PRINTING IS ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME. THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE THIS PROJECT A SUCCESS.

    Awesome find Tony! As soon as I write this my Banner vote is going in! You just don't see early Draped Bust dimes being found. The low mintage combined with the fact that many were melted down for bullion, and for industrial purposes (by silver smiths), and replaced with worn under weight Spanish Silver coins means there are very few left. There are probably only a couple hundred of those still in existence. And the condition of yours is amazing! Keep us posted on the grading results.

    Welcome to the Draped Bust dime club! Very few people have dug them. Somehow I have managed to dig two of them, A 16 star 1797 and an 1803, but neither of mine is in very good condition.

    Bill, in 1797 they made some with 13 stars and some with 16 stars. Check out this article. It will tell you all you want to know about the 1797 sixteen star dime. The author estimates that there are only 115 to 125 of the sixteen star variety still in existence.

    1797 Dimes ?in the news? and general information for collecting Draped Bust Dimes
