Interesting Judd-330 Postage Currency Pattern1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-330, Pollock-399, R.6, PR64 PCGS. The obverse depicts an ornamental shield with an inverted laurel wreath suspended from a ring. A pair of crossed arrows is behind the shield. The inscription reads EXCHANGED FOR U.S. NOTES. The reverse has 10 CENTS 1863 in the center with * POSTAGE CURRENCY * ACT JULY 1862 around the margin. Struck in either tin or a tin/copper alloy with a plain edge. This fascinating series has been exhaustively studied by David Cassel, who published a book on Postage Currency patterns a couple of years ago. Brilliant-gray throughout, the surfaces on this piece display an interesting crazed appearance, suggestive of a dry creek bed, and the planchet appears to have buckled slightly from die ejection.(#60489) (PCGS# 60489)
