    1868 Seated Liberty Dime in Nickel
    Judd-641, PR67 Cameo
    Blundered Postage Currency Die

    1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-641, Pollock-713, Low R.7, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Both sides are similar to the regular-issue Seated Liberty dime, but the date in exergue on the obverse has been moved inside the wreath on the reverse, which has ONE DIME in the center and a six-pointed star up top. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. As the Judd reference points out, these coins were made in 1863 with a die dated 1868 in error. The obverse is the same as that of Judd-331, a Postage Currency dime.

    The surfaces on this Superb Gem Cameo example are lightly toned and highly mirrored, showing no distractions. Die polishing marks are abundant on the lower obverse, as made at the Mint. Population: 1 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (8/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29NW, PCGS# 507107)
