1870 Standard Silver Dime, PR64 Brown, Judd-8331870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-833, Pollock-923, High R.6, PR64 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. Regular dies reverse. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Now, let's be very clear about one thing: we are not absolutely convinced that this is a copper striking. The texture of the surfaces and the teal coloration are suggestive of a silver striking. However, magnification shows reddish patina in the folds of the drapery, and when the piece is angled downward there is a slight brownish cast beneath the toning. We leave the determination of the metallic composition of this piece to the buyer. Both silver and copper pieces have the same rarity factor, but the silver strikings are somewhat more valuable.(#61077) (PCGS# 61077)
