Proof 1868 Gilt Ten Dollar, Judd-6621868 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-662, Pollock-735, Low R.7--Harshly Cleaned--NCS. Proof. The obverse design, attributed to James Longacre, is similar to the design on the circulating three cent nickel, although the large format appears radically different. The reverse shows a small eagle in the center with raised wings, scroll reading IN GOD WE TRUST, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, and TEN D. at the rim below. Struck in copper, gilt, with a reeded edge. This piece has a glossy, lusterless yellow appearance from a past cleaning, with hairlined fields, although slight signs of retoning are starting to appear. USPatterns.com estimates that about a dozen copper examples are known, several of them gilt specimens. (PCGS# 60880)
