Description

1870 Seated Dime Pattern, Judd-833
PR66 Red and Brown

1870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-833, Pollock-923, High R.6, PR66 Red and Brown NGC.
Design.
A left-facing seated Liberty holds a shield at her right side and an olive branch in her left hand. A scroll inscribed with LIBERTY flows across the shield and a crudely fashioned cap and pole are suspended in the background. UNITED STATES / OF AMERICA occupies the periphery with the date, 1870, in exergue. The reverse is that of the regular dime issue for the year. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
The USPatterns.com website opines that approximately 12 examples of Judd-833 exist in all grades. Pollock (1994) was able to document 11 specimens, and the combined total of certified examples at the major grading services confirms the consensus of a High R.6 rarity.
