    1868 Ten Dollar Pattern in Copper
    Judd-662, Pollock-735, PR65 Brown

    1868 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-662, Pollock-735, Low R.7, PR65 Brown NGC. The obverse design, attributed to James B. Longacre, is quite similar to the design on the circulating three cent nickel, although in the large format here it looks radically different. The reverse shows a small eagle in the center with raised wings, the scroll reads IN GOD WE TRUST, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, and TEN D. at the rim below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is the Low Date variant with the 1 in the date close to the border and distant from the bust. Possibly as many as a dozen examples of this variety exist, and several are gilt. The other variety, Pollock-737, has the 1 closer to the bust. Only two examples of the High Date variety are thought to exist. Examples of this design were struck in gold, copper, and aluminum. Only four pieces are known in gold. This is a lovely Brown example that, while technically Brown, appears to even the most casual observer to be blue. The fields are brightly mirrored and greatly enhance the radiant appearance of this Gem. Problem-free surfaces.
    From The David Cassel Collection.
