    1868 Ten Cents in Nickel
    Judd-647, PR58

    1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-647, Pollock-720, Low R.6, PR58 PCGS. The obverse features the almost identical design used on large cents from 1843 to 1857, the reverse is similar except TEN CENTS is in the center of the wreath. It is probable that these patterns were prepared simply to exhibit the size and weight of the suggested coin rather than to illustrate a proposed design. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. About two dozen examples are believed known in nickel, and twice that number are estimated extant in copper. This piece is well struck and shows just a touch of friction in the fields under a milky gray patina. Scattered flecks of carbon are barely visible on the obverse and there is a diagonal hairline scratch on the reverse from the inside of the wreath to the E in CENTS.
