    1868 Ten Dollar, PR64 Gilt
    Judd-662, Attributed to Longacre

    1868 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-662, Pollock-735, R.7, PR64 Gilt NGC. CAC.
    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, gilt, with a reeded edge.

    Commentary. 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.

    Physical Description. The crispness of the design and the presence of fine die lines suggest that this pattern was struck on a planchet prepared with gold plating before it was struck. The surfaces are brilliant yellow with bold design elements and reflective fields.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
