1870 Seated Liberty Ten Cents in Copper, Judd-827

1870 Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-827, Pollock-917, R.7-8, PR 61 Red and Brown PCGS. Attributed to William Barber's design, the obverse depicts a seated figure of Liberty facing left and supporting a shield in her right hand, an olive branch in her left. A free-standing liberty pole is present behind the shield. On the reverse, 10 CENTS is within a wreath of cotton and corn, and the inscription STANDARD is above. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The surfaces display obvious hairlining and some deepening of color on the highpoints. Liberty appears to be gazing into an isolated carbon spot.
From the Gene Wolfe Collection of Pattern Coinage.
