    Description

    1868 Ten Cent in Aluminum, Judd-649, PR63

    1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-649, Pollock-722, Low R.7, PR63 NGC. An 1868 Seated dime struck in aluminum with a reeded edge from the regular-issue dies for the year. This piece shows a considerable amount of contrast between the fields and devices, and scattered surface ticks and contact marks that define the grade are minor. The 1868 Seated dime is a better date in the regular series, and this aluminum pattern would certainly enhance an advanced collection either of patterns or Seated dimes. NGC and PCGS combined show a total of 10 submissions of this pattern issue in all grades, including Cameo coins.
    Part of a complete 16-piece aluminum proof set. Ex: Treasury Secretary Hugh McCulloch (circa 1868); McCulloch family; Eric Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29P3, PCGS# 60867)

    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.
