    1868 Half Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-639, PR65 Cameo

    1868 H10C Half Dime, Judd-639, Pollock-711, Low R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Garrett-Simpson. Both the Seated Liberty obverse and the agricultural wreath reverse with HALF DIME in the center are the same as on the half dime (silver examples of which would be discontinued five years later, during the "Crime of '73." Here, however, this pattern is a die trial issue, struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. According to, the pieces were struck to show how easily aluminum coined, and they were offered for sale to collectors in cased sets, several of which still exist. Strong contrast is seen between the fields and devices on each side, a trait one can usually count on with aluminum patterns. Brilliant throughout.
