Description

Pattern 1868 Half Dime Die Trial Struck in
Aluminum, Judd-639, PR63

1868 H10C Half Dime, Judd-639, Pollock-711, Low R.7, PR63 PCGS. Both the Seated Liberty obverse and the agricultural wreath reverse with HALF DIME in the center are the same as on the half dime (silver examples of which would be discontinued five years later, during the "Crime of '73"). Here, however, this pattern is a dies trial issue, struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. According to www.USPatterns.com, the pieces were struck to show how easily aluminum coined, and they were offered for sale to collectors in cased sets, several of which still exist today. The reverse is choice, but a bit of crumbling shows on the obverse rim. Certified in a green-label holder. (NGC ID# 29NV, PCGS# 60857)
