Description:
Unusual 1863 Pattern Dime Struck in Aluminum, Judd-327
1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-327, Pollock-397, High R.6, PR62 ANACS. The obverse depicts a Union shield pierced by two arrows, a simple wreath rests above. The remainder of the design consists of token-like legends; EXCHANGED FOR U.S. NOTES on the obverse, POSTAL CURRENCY ACT JULY 1862 and 10 CENTS 1863 on the reverse. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. An early attempt to replace the despised fractional currency pieces in circulation; the two cent piece, three cent nickel, and shield nickel were eventually introduced for this purpose. Brilliant and well centered, but limited in grade by both squiggly wire marks and spotty grease stains that were both struck into the obverse at the time of manufacture. Apparently, little care was taken when this pattern piece was produced. (PCGS# 60486)
