    1863 Postage Currency Ten Cents in Tin
    Judd-330, PR63

    1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-330, Pollock-399, Cassel-68, Low R.6, PR63 PCGS. CAC. 28.08 grains. Standard Postage Currency obverse and reverse designs. Struck in tin (mostly) with a plain edge. According to the Chapman Brothers in their 1903 catalog of the George Eavenson Collection, 15 tin coins that were alloyed with copper were struck in May 1863. The stated composition of this piece is: 97% tine and 3% copper. The tin surfaces are bright and virtually undiminished by toning. The strike is strong throughout and there are a number of lint marks impressed into the reverse, debris that obviously adhered to the die by static electricity after the die was wiped by the coiner.
