    1863 Seated Half Dime in Copper
    Judd-323, PR64 Red

    1863 H10C Half Dime, Judd-323, Pollock-388, R.7, PR64 Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Both obverse and reverse dies are the designs used on regular-issue coinage for the year. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Traditionally listed as a dies trial striking, Judd-323 is now believed to be a restrike issue. The website elaborates: "... these are actually restrikes deliberately made in the early 1870s and sold as part of complete off-metal sets with the silver coinage of this year containing quarter, half dollar, and dollar [pieces] which had the reverses of 1866 with the motto 'IN GOD WE TRUST' above the eagle." The hub used to produce the dies had a broken D in UNITED, as observed on the current offering. To a lesser degree, aluminum pieces -- Judd-324 -- were produced from the same die marriage. Perhaps a dozen examples of Judd-323 are believed extant in all grades. The surfaces display bright, original mint red luster on each side. The only grade-limiting factor is a number of small specks of carbon scattered across each side.
