Author Jim Koenings forwarded this press release on his new monograph on varieties of the 1824 Capped Bust Dime.
My first book "1827 JR-2 - The Most Underrated Capped Bust Dime Die Variety" was printed in January, 2010. My second book "1824 JR-2 - The 6th Rarest Capped Bust Dime Die Variety" was printed in late September, 2010. Again, only 100 copies were printed. This second book will have 45 numbered pages of which 37 will have color photos. It will be softbound with Mylar covers and have a comb binding that allows you to open it and lay it flat to compare photos. Again, each specimen will be shown on a separate page with obverse and reverse photos being 4 ½" in diameter.
Every known 1824 JR-2 dime, starting with the first JRCS Dime Census published in the December, 1987, John Reich Journal will be accounted for, along with several not known to John Reich Collectors Society (JRCS) members. Each specimen is ranked, starting with the finest known, an EF-45 specimen owned by John W. McCloskey down to a holed example owned by collector John Brekken.
Besides being a pictorial census of 1824 JR-2 dimes, this book includes my 25-year study on all 1824 dimes, which includes a chapter on 1824 grade distribution. There is a chapter that discusses the edges of this variety. Another chapter shows recently discovered counterfeit 1824 dimes, which makes my pedigree information even more valuable.
