    1869 Ten Dollar in Copper
    Judd-781, PR65+ Brown

    1869 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-781, Pollock-866, High R.7, PR65+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Both the obverse and reverse are from the regular dies for the year. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This was one of an estimated six examples manufactured in copper and sold to collectors as part of off-metal year sets at a time when Mint hijinks were at their apex. Other regular dies eagles are known in aluminum and a single example exists in nickel. Deep chocolate-brown surfaces exhibit predictably strong strike definition, flashy fields, and eye-appealing olive and violet-blue accents. This Gem shows an as-made strike-through at IC in AMERICA, plus other small lint marks and die cracks around the peripheries. Quality is phenomenal.
