    1868 Copper Ten Cent Pattern
    Judd-648, PR65 Brown

    1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-648, Pollock-721, High R.6, PR65 Brown NGC.
    Design.
    The obverse features the nearly identical design used on large cents from 1843 to 1857. Although the reverse is similar to the large cent design, the wreath is smaller and open, and TEN CENTS is in the center. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

    Commentary. About two dozen of these patterns are known in copper, according to Saul Teichman, although the 10th edition of the Judd reference rates this variety as High R.6, suggesting a surviving population of just over a dozen examples. NGC and PCGS have certified 24 pieces, supporting the population estimate of Teichman at USPatterns.com.

    Physical Description. Tan and olive-brown surfaces show iridescent toning with hints of faded orange mint color on the reverse. The fields are satiny and approach a matte finish on this sharply struck Gem. Faintly reflective surfaces are noted on both sides.

    Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $12.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29P2, PCGS# 60866)

    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.
