    1865 Dime in Copper
    Judd-421, PR64 Red and Brown

    1865 10C Ten Cents, Judd-421, Pollock-493, High R.7, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This alleged dies trial piece was most likely deliberately struck for sale to collectors. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Fewer than four examples have been confirmed, including one in the Connecticut State Library. This is a brightly lustrous example whose obverse displays significant remaining mint red that is mixed with lavender. The reverse is more significantly toned and several shades deeper in hue. Seldom offered and quite an opportunity.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29JA, PCGS# 70604)
