    1869 Dime in Cupro-Nickel
    Judd-714, PR65

    1869 10C Dime, Judd-714, Pollock-793, Low R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features the regular design for the year, without the date below Liberty. The reverse is inscribed SIL. 9 / NIC. 1 / 1869. Struck in cupro-nickel composition with a reeded edge. These patterns were previously thought to have been struck in a silver-nickel alloy, but recent metallurgical analysis reveals all known examples (slightly more than a dozen) are struck in standard coin nickel -- roughly 75% copper, 25% nickel. Delicate golden patina provides color to each side. The fields are flashy, and the devices show pinpoint definition.
    Ex: Santa Clara Signature (Heritage, 11/2001), lot 6745.
