    1863 Ten Cent Postage Currency Pattern
    Judd-329, Proof With Uncirculated Details

    1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-329, Pollock-399, Cassel-26, Low R.6 -- Bent -- NGC Details. Proof, Unc. Details. The obverse features an ornamental shield that has an inverted laurel wreath suspended from a ring. A pair of arrows are crossed behind the shield. The reverse features the denomination and date in the center. Struck in tin with a plain edge. A rare Civil War postal currency pattern made with hopes of returning the ten cent denomination to commerce after silver dimes were hoarded. The Chapman Brothers 1903 catalog of the George Eavenson Collection states that 39 tin specimens were produced in May 1863. This well-struck and unworn example is moderately granular from oxidation but no bend is readily evident.
    From The Maurice Storck Collection.
