Terrific 1870 Standard Silver Dime in Copper
Judd-828, PR65 Brown

1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-828, Pollock-918, High R.6, PR65 Brown NGC. Attributed to William Barber, 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, with the inscription STANDARD above. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The USPatterns.com website states that about a dozen examples are known of this pattern, but we estimate that fewer pieces may actually exist. The copper composition of this piece is not immediately apparent as both sides have taken on a deep blue patina. It is only on the reverse that a few traces of original red can still be seen. The fields are deeply mirrored, the devices are fully brought up throughout, and there are no mentionable contact marks. (PCGS# 61072)
