Description

Outstanding 1870 Standard Silver Dime
Judd-851, PR65 Brown
Toned in a Riot of Colors

1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-851, Pollock-958, Low R.7, PR65 Brown NGC. Standard Silver design for the dime with a bust of Liberty facing right on the obverse ornamented with a single star. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the top, and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll below. The denomination 10 CENTS and the date 1870 are centered on the reverse within a wreath of cotton and corn. The word STANDARD is at the upper border. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. USPatterns.com estimates that about half a dozen pieces are known. This is one of the finest. The fields are deeply reflective in spite of the rich toning seen on each side. The toning is iridescent blue, green, and violet and gives the piece a great deal of character and eye appeal. (NGC ID# 29VU, PCGS# 61095)
