Description

1869 Standard Silver Dime in Aluminum
Judd-700, PR67 Cameo, Low R.7
Less Than Six Examples Believed Extant
Finest Certified by Two Points

1869 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-700, Pollock-779, Low R.7, PR67 Cameo NGC.
Design.
On the obverse, a right-facing Liberty wears a Phrygian cap decorated with three stars. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA borders the upper periphery of the obverse, with IN GOD WE TRUST in a curved ribbon below. The reverse displays STANDARD SILVER around the upper edge, and 10 CENTS is inside an oak and laurel wreath. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
Specialists agree that less than six examples of Judd-700 exist in all grades, although eight pieces are represented in the combined population data at NGC and PCGS--obviously the result of resubmissions of the same pattern. Andrew Pollock (1994) identifies three specimens, including the current offering, the Connecticut State Library piece, and the King Farouk Judd-700 pattern. Of the three metals used for the Standard Silver patterns, the copper and aluminum issues are the most elusive today.

Physical Description.
Stunningly brilliant fields support frosty devices on this well preserved representative. Slight weakness in the dentilation is inherent to the issue and in no way affects the grade on this Superb Gem proof specimen. And, as one would expect with such a lofty grade assessment, we struggle to find any other flaws worthy of individual mention. The NGC Census Report lists only four examples in all grades. This piece, a PR67 Cameo, is by far the finest certified at either service, with the next closest pieces a PR64 NGC and a PR65 PCGS (10/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's private treaty transaction.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60925)
