Gem Proof 1870 Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-8551870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-855, Pollock-935, R.6-7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Bass. Continuing the same design as in 1869, this Standard Silver issue has a central device on the obverse that features Liberty facing right wearing a cap ornamented with three stars, the motto below, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. The reverse has 10 CENTS in the center, surrounded by a wreath of oak and laurel, STANDARD SILVER above, and 1870 below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. A spectacular, deeply mirrored example, this piece shows slight striking softness in the center of the obverse. Both sides are mostly brilliant with just the slightest hint of rose toning around the margins. Lightly frosted devices. This is the highest graded example encapsulated by PCGS.
Purchased by Harry Bass from Julian Leidman, August 14, 1971; Bass I Sale (Bowers and Merena, 5/99), lot 1100, where it realized $1,725. (PCGS# 61099)
