Nickel Striking of the Bickford Ten Dollar, Judd-13771874 $10 Bickford Ten Dollar, Judd-1377, Pollock-1522, R.7, PR64 PCGS. The obverse depicts a bust of Liberty facing left with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and the date below. Liberty wears a diadem inscribed with the word LIBERTY and ornamented with six stars. The weight 16.72 GRAMS, the standard of the metal 900 FINE, and the word UBIQUE are centered on the reverse. Around the periphery is the U.S. denomination DOLLARS 10 and the following international equivalents: STERLING (Pound) 2.1.1; MARKEN 41.99; KRONEN 37.31; GULDEN 20.73; and FRANCS 51.81. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. Only two or three of these pieces are known, and all seem to show the same die crack at 5 o'clock on the obverse. This die crack and the softness in the center of the reverse are undoubtedly from the hardness of the nickel alloy. Moderately reflective, the reverse is lightly toned and there are numerous tiny planchet flakes out of the obverse.(#61681) (PCGS# 61681)
