Description

Impressive 1868 Aluminum
Seated Dime Pattern
Judd-649, PR63

1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-649, Pollock-722, Low R.7, PR63 NGC.
Design.
The regular issue design for the Seated Liberty dime. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
Aluminum trial pieces were produced in 1868 and 1869 to show the ease of coinage in that metal. A few sets were also produced for sale to collectors, but most have now been broken up and the coins sold individually. It is thought that about six pieces exist today.

Physical Description.
Both sides have delightful light gray surfaces with fully mirrored fields around lustrous devices. All design elements are sharply detailed. Slight planchet roughness is evident at the left obverse, and both sides have a limited number of blemishes that prevent a higher grade. NGC Census: 1 in PR63, 3 finer. PCGS Population: none in PR63, 3 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Auction '84 (Superior, 7/1984), lot 495; Superior (2/1987), lot 947A.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two (PCGS# 60867)
