Description

1871 Indian Princess Dime
Judd-1084, PR65

1871 10C Ten Cents, Judd-1084, Pollock-1220, Low R.7, PR65 NGC. The obverse is Longacre's Indian Princess design, here with 13 stars around the rim. The reverse is the regular-issue 1871 dime die. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
A nonsensical--or fantastical is perhaps a better word--pairing of a pattern obverse with a regular-issue reverse, for no other apparent reason than to add more delicacies to the Mint's extensive menu. This issue, like many of the Standard Silver die pairings, is a "stateless" and "godless" variety that omits UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and IN GOD WE TRUST from either side.
Considerable cameo contrast appears on both sides even though uncredited by NGC, with bluish highlights over the still mostly silver surfaces. A lovely Gem of this rare variety.
Ex: Stack's private treaty (11/1981); Lemus/Queller Collection, Part Two (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1797. (PCGS# 61343)
