Description:
Possibly Unique 1872 Aluminum
Half Dime, Judd-1192
Regular Dies, PR65 Cameo

1872 H10C Half Dime, Judd-1192, Pollock-1332, R.8, PR65 Cameo NGC.
Design.
The regular dies for the 1872 Seated Liberty half dime. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
Like some previous years, all of the regular-issue proof coins of 1872 were struck in various off-metals, most notably in copper and aluminum. The off-metal coins are all extremely rare, and the prospect of forming a complete collection in any single metal is slim at best.

The last auction appearance for Judd-1192, according to Dave Bowers in the ninth edition of Judd, was when this coin appeared in the March 1977 Stack's sale. Collectors have waited patiently for 30 years to acquire an example of the variety. Pollock recorded a second example, from the Farouk sale in 1954 that reappeared in M.H. Bolender's sale of October 1955. If the Queller specimen and the Farouk coin are the same, then we would conclude that Judd-1192 is unique. At USPatterns.com, Saul Teichman states "fewer than 3 examples confirmed."

Physical Description.
A stunning Gem Cameo proof with brilliant and nearly flawless bright surfaces. Both sides have fully mirrored fields and highly lustrous, frosty devices. The strike is bold, and the overall appearance of this aluminum pattern half dime is exceptional. For an example of this rarity to survive in such wonderful condition is quite amazing. This piece shows only the minor planchet roughness that is testimony to the Mint's still relative unfamiliarity with the processing of aluminum at the time. The sole example of Judd-1192 certified at NGC, while PCGS has also certified only a single PR65 piece (11/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's (3/1977), lot 774.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 61463)
