    1868 Postage Currency Ten Cents
    Struck in Nickel
    Judd-644, PR66

    1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-644, Pollock-716, Cassel-18, Low R.7, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A Postage Currency related pattern, dated 1868. The obverse has a central shield with diagonal arrows behind, EXCHANGED FOR above and U.S. NOTES below. The reverse is a variant of the adopted design with the central wreath surrounding ONE DIME, a six-pointed star above and the date below. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. This series of patterns have less advanced die cracks than their 1863 counterparts. The particular charm of these coins lies in the date, as explained by David Cassel:

    " ... these coins dated 1868 ... were produced in May 1863 before most of the Dies 1-A coins as piéces de caprice for collectors. The several I have seen do not appear to be restrikes but appear to be Mint date logo punch errors. I am not aware of any patterns that were struck five years in anticipation of the expectation of a need."



    This is a brightly mirrored piece that shows only slight golden toning on each side.
