Rare '1868' Postage Currency Related Pattern, PR65
Judd-644, Ex: Bass

1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-644, Pollock-716, High R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Harry Bass. A postage currency related pattern, dated 1868. The obverse has a central shield with diagonal arrows behind, EXCHANGED FOR above and U.S. NOTES below. The reverse has a variant of the adopted design with the central wreath surrounding ONE DIME, a six-pointed star above and the date below. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge.
According to the extensive research conducted by David Cassel, the unique appeal of these coins lies in the date:
"The most important revelation about these coins dated 1868 is that they were produced in May 1863 before most of the Dies 1-A coins as pieces de caprice for collectors and the several I have seen do not appear to be restrike but appear to be Mint date logo punch errors. I am not aware of any patterns that were struck five years in anticipation of the expectation of a need."
Light, even golden toning covers each side of this brightly reflective pattern.
Ex: Abner Kreisberg's Quality Sales Corp. (11/30/1970), lot 1290; Bass I (Bowers and Merena, 5/99), lot 1085.
