    1863 Postage Currency Ten Cents in Copper
    Judd-326B, PR65 Brown

    1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-326B, Pollock-396, R.8, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse bears a central shield with intersecting arrows behind and a ring atop, from which depends an inverted laurel wreath framing the shield left and right. EXCHANGED FOR / U.S. NOTES occupies the periphery. The reverse shows two rosettes separating POSTAGE CURRENCY and ACT JULY 1862, with 10 CENTS 1863 on three lines in the center. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Series specialist David Cassel writes that this "beautiful coin" is "almost pure copper ranging with two or three % alloy with a plain edge. ... It is more than likely (my opinion 97%) pure to nearly pure (100% copper.) This coin is probably the coin that Rick Montgomery slabbed as a Judd 326B way back years ago." Both sides showcase magnificent ice-blue patina with golden-olive accents. A rarity with perhaps just three pieces known.
