Description

1869 Aluminum Half Dime, Judd-693
Finest Certified PR67 Ultra Cameo
Dramatic Rotated Double Strike

1869 PH10C Seated Half Dime, Judd-693, Pollock-772, High R.7, PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC.
Design.
An impression from the regular issues dies in aluminum with a reeded edge. This piece is dramatically double struck with about 10 degrees of separation.

Commentary. Only five or six examples of this pattern variety are known, and it is doubtful that any others are double struck like this piece. NGC has certified only one other example, a PR63 Cameo, and PCGS has graded three non-Cameo pieces as PR63, PR65, and PR66. The Newman example is double struck, numerically the finest, and the only certified Ultra Cameo specimen: an unbeatable combination.

Physical Description. The rotated double strike is dramatic and is equaled by the quality of this Superb Gem. Both sides have heavy field-to-device contrast on the light gray aluminum surfaces with deeply mirrored fields. A few lint marks and other Mint-made imperfections on each side are entirely as struck; otherwise, pristine surfaces and exceptional eye appeal.

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 @ $20; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29R7, PCGS# 60918)
