Description

PCGS 1870 Standard Silver Dime, Judd-866, R.6, PR 64. On the obverse the head of Liberty is wearing a diadem with a plain ribbon encircling her hair; the reverse has 10 CENTS in the center surrounded by a thick oak and laurel wreath with STANDARD SILVER 1870 at the margin. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. This is a pleasing aluminum pattern that has bright surfaces. The deeply mirrored fields provide a strong contrast against the thick white mint frost on the devices. There are a few small lint marks on the obverse and close examination reveals that the planchet was not too well prepared before striking, but altogether this is most pleasing example of this very scarce Standard Silver issue. Rarer than R.6, this piece will most likely be re-rated R.7 when the new pattern book is released. (NGC ID# 2Y5W, PCGS# 61110)
