Description:
1870 William Barber's Seated Liberty Dime
Judd-833, PR65+ Red
The Only Red Specimen
1870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-833, Pollock-923, R.7, PR65+ Red NGC. CAC.
Design. On the obverse, a left-facing seated Liberty holds a shield at her right side and an olive branch in her left hand. A scroll inscribed LIBERTY flows across the shield and a Liberty cap and pole stand 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 Pollock reference itemizes five examples and lists seven additional appearances, while USPatterns.com suggests that 12 examples are known. There may actually be slightly more than a dozen survivors. NGC and PCGS have certified 22 pieces in all grades, and 21 of those are designated Brown or Red and Brown. Only the Newman example is designated Red.

Physical Description. This impressive Gem has brilliant orange mint color with a few trivial spots and slight mellowing of the mint color on the reverse. Boldly struck, as expected for this Gem proof.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 81077)
