Nickel Dies Trial Striking of the 1868 Half Dime1868 H10C Half Dime, Judd-638, Pollock-710, Low R.6, PR65 NGC. Regular dies trial striking of the 1868 half dime, but struck in nickel alloy with a plain edge. At first glance this looks like a silver half dime. But close examination shows heavy die striations in the fields, as often seen on patterns. Also, there is just a bit of high point softness on the obverse. The surfaces are brilliant throughout and there is an unmistakable but unacknowledged contrast between the depth of mirroring in the fields and the thick mint frost over the devices. Slight evidence of die clashing and a few tiny specks of carbon are seen on each side. (PCGS# 60856)
