1869 Standard Silver Ten Cents in Aluminum
1869 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-713, Pollock-792, R.7,
PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. On the obverse Liberty faces right,
wearing a headband that is adorned with a single large star in the
forehead area. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA borders the upper
periphery, with IN GOD WE TRUST in a curved ribbon below. On the
reverse STANDARD SILVER is around the upper edge, with 10 / CENTS
in an oak and laurel wreath. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge.
The fields are deeply reflective, as almost always seen on aluminum
strikes, and the devices are nicely frosted. The otherwise
brilliant surfaces show just the slightest streakiness, and there
are a couple of shallow planchet voids in the right obverse field,
also a common occurrence on aluminum patterns.
