Description

1871 Standard Silver Half Dime in Copper
Judd-1066, PR67 Red and Brown
Finest Certified

1871 H10C Standard Silver Half Dime, Judd-1066, Pollock-1201, R.7, PR67 Red and Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
Longacre's Indian princess design is featured on the obverse, with stars around the periphery. The reverse displays the denomination inside of a wreath of cotton and corn and the inscription STANDARD above, i.e., the "Standard Reverse" design of 1870. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary. As with many Standard Silver issues, this design was implemented by William Barber but based on a design by James Longacre, who died two years previously. This is the most frequently seen of the four Longacre designs of this year with an estimated dozen or so known.

Physical Description. Technically NGC is correct in calling this pattern Red and Brown, but it will require close examination to actually discover the Brown part of that color designation. The Brown is really pale blue, scattered here and there around the margins. The surfaces show varying shades of red, with cherry-red and bright orange-red alternating. The fields are also highly reflective, and the obverse displays evidence of a strongly striated die. The strike is sharply brought up with even detailing on both obverse and reverse. The only identifying mark we see is a small grease stain (as struck) below star 6 This is the finest Judd-1066 certified in any color designation at both grading services (3/13).
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 71325)

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
