Description

1868 Regular Dies Trial Half Dime in Nickel
Judd-638, Clashed Dies, PR64

1868 H10C Half Dime, Judd-638, Pollock-710, R.6, PR64 NGC. CAC.
Design.
The regular issue Seated Liberty half dime design, struck in nickel alloy with a plain edge. Die clashing is evident in the obverse and reverse fields.

Commentary. Considered to be deliberately issued for contemporary collectors, it is likely that the Judd-638 half dime patterns were struck that year, and the clashed dies exhibited on this piece may permit matching to regular issue pieces from the same die pair. About two dozen examples of this nickel alloy pattern are known.

Physical Description. Subdued light gray surfaces host a few faint hairlines and minuscule contact marks on this Choice proof. The design elements are sharp and the surfaces are faintly reflective.

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $10; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29NU, PCGS# 60856)
