    1868 Regular Dies Trial Half Dime in Nickel
    Judd-638, Clashed Dies, PR64

    1868 H10C Half Dime, Judd-638, Pollock-710, R.6, PR64 NGC. CAC.
    Design.
    The regular issue Seated Liberty half dime design, struck in nickel alloy with a plain edge. Die clashing is evident in the obverse and reverse fields.

    Commentary. Considered to be deliberately issued for contemporary collectors, it is likely that the Judd-638 half dime patterns were struck that year, and the clashed dies exhibited on this piece may permit matching to regular issue pieces from the same die pair. About two dozen examples of this nickel alloy pattern are known.

    Physical Description. Subdued light gray surfaces host a few faint hairlines and minuscule contact marks on this Choice proof. The design elements are sharp and the surfaces are faintly reflective.

    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 @ $10; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    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.
