Description

    1870 Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-837, Pollock-928, R.5-6, PR 64 PCGS. The obverse features a bust of Liberty that faces right with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and a scroll with IN GOD WE TRUST below. Liberty wears a cap ornamented with three stars. On the reverse, the denomination 10 CENTS and the date 1870 are within a wreath of cotton and corn, with the inscription STANDARD above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Both sides are attractively toned in blue and golden-violet iridescence, with a window of brilliance at the center of the reverse. Only a small, round depression near the tip of the bust and a squiggly lint mark at the back of the cap, both Mint related distractions, inhibit a gem rating. (NGC ID# 94FK, PCGS# 61081)
