1865 Half Dime in Copper
1865 H10C Half Dime, Judd-420, Pollock-492, High R.7, PR64 Brown
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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 rare, however. USPatterns.com estimates
that about six examples are extant. The fields are brightly
mirrored and serve to enhance the remaining cherry-red and
blue-gray patina on each side. Well-struck throughout.
Judd-420, PR64 Brown
