Richly Toned 1870 William Barber Dime Pattern, Judd-8321870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-832, Pollock-922, R.7, PR64 PCGS. 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. The reverse has the same cereal wreath type used to coin regular issue 1870 dimes. Sets were available of this design in silver, copper, and aluminum with either reeded or plain edges. It is not known what price the Mint sold these for. This obverse was also combined with the Standard Silver wreath reverse. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Deep olive-green and rose toning covers each side of this nicely reflective pattern. A bit softly struck on the highpoints, as is often the case with patterns, as die opposition was one of the reasons for striking patterns; that is, to determine if each side would strike up well as the design is laid out. In this case, apparently not. (PCGS# 61076)
