    1863 Postage Currency Pattern
    Judd-331, PR64, Copper-Nickel Alloy

    1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-331, Pollock-402, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The design is a dateless Seated Liberty obverse, paired with the proposed postage currency reverse featuring 10 CENTS 1863 in the center and * POSTAGE CURRENCY *ACT JULY 1862 around the margin. Struck in copper-nickel with a reeded edge. There are five confirmed examples of Judd-331 (formerly Judd-331B), per USPatterns.com. They were produced in 1869 from leftover 1863 dies that were lapped to move rust. Pale golden-gray surfaces are moderately flashy and partly reflective. Well-struck with an area of reddish color over the left side of Liberty's profile.
