    1864 Half Dime in Nickel
    Judd-380, PR66
    Two Coins Known

    1864 H10C Half Dime, Judd-380, Pollock-448, R.8, PR66 PCGS. CAC Ex: Simpson. Both sides are from the regular half dime dies for the year. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. This is one of two known Judd-380 representatives. One coin has been traced to the April 1891 Francis Doughty Collection, later to the H.P. Smith Collection (1906), and then Virgil Brand. Another was exhibited by Judson Brenner at the 1914 ANS conference. That coin also made its way into the Brand holdings. One of the two coins was later offered as part of the 1954 King Farouk Collection sale. Dave Bowers offered an example of Judd-380 in his 1964 issue of the Empire Review. Although we cannot trace the provenance of this Premium Gem, we believe it was last offered publicly in 2003. Plate quality makes matching difficult. Despite the hardness of the nickel alloy, the devices on both sides are fully defined. Clean nickel-gray surfaces reveal delicate golden accents when rotated. With only two coins known, opportunities to obtain an example of this rare pattern are essentially once-in-a-generation events. Take advantage.
    Ex: Possibly The Classics Sale (American Numismatic Rarities, 7/2003), lot 1016.
