Description

1870 Seated Dime in Copper
Almost Full Red Remains
Judd-834, Sparkling PR66 Red and Brown

1870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-834, Pollock-924, High R.6, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
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 plain edge.

Commentary. An estimated dozen or so examples are known of this plain-edge variant.

Physical Description. This example retains almost complete mint luster with just the tiniest speckling of blue-brown seen on each side. Each side sparkles with brightness from the combination of the proofing process and the significant mint red. The strike is sharp throughout, and the only identifiers for pedigree purposes are a spot on the lower part of the M in DIME on the reverse and a tiny planchet void below that same letter. Only 12 coins have been certified (minus an unknown number of resubmissions) in both Red and Brown and Red by both grading services; this piece is the finest Red and Brown example (2/13).

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $8.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 71078)
