1879 "Washlady" Dime Pattern, Judd-15841879 10C Washlady Ten Cents, Judd-1584, Pollock-1777, R.6, PR66 NGC. Barber's famous "Washlady" design, a term that has been used to describe the liberally-locked portrait since the nineteenth century. The head of Liberty faces left surrounded by the legend and the date is situated below. She is wearing a headband inscribed LIBERTY. The headband is ornamented with ears of wheat, cotton leaves, and bolls. On the reverse, the denomination is encircled by a ring of dots that is flanked by the ornamentally framed motto E PLURIBUS UNUM and a wreath of cotton and wheat. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The surfaces are deeply toned, mostly in shades of sea-green and golden-rose. We see no contact marks worthy of mention. An outstanding example of this famous and highly coveted pattern design. Accompanied by PCGS insert 3682257 and also graded PR66 by them.
