    1861 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-285, Pollock-340, High R.6, PR63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Both the obverse and reverse designs are similar to those used on regular-issue 1861 eagles, but the motto GOD OUR TRUST has been added on a scroll in the upper reverse field. The high date, rounded bun Pollock subvariety. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. About a half dozen each are known with a Low Date (Pollock-338) and a High Date (Pollock-340). This coin showcases smooth mahogany-brown surfaces. A bit of roughness occurs around the rims, and a few traces of verdigris are noted on the reverse, limiting the grade.
