    1865 Copper Dies Trial for the Half Dime
    Judd-420, PR64 Brown
    About Six Pieces Known

    1865 H10C Half Dime, Judd-420, Pollock-492, High R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Regular dies trial piece for the half dime of 1865. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Like so many other dies trial pieces from this period it was probably made for sale to collectors. The issue is extremely rare, however. USPatterns.com estimates that about six examples are extant. This is an infrequently offered pattern that comes up at auction about every four years. The last example we offered was the Queller piece in January 2009. The surfaces are chocolate-brown and generally problem-free. The strike is strong on the obverse, but shows the usual softness on the upper wreath on the reverse. (NGC ID# 29J9, PCGS# 60602)
