    1869 Ten Cent in 'Koulz's' Alloy
    Judd-716, PR64

    1869 10C Ten Cents, Judd-716, Pollock-795, High R.6, PR64 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to the regular issue, but without the date in exergue. The reverse has SIL. / NIC. / COP. in larger letters, the date is below, smaller, and slightly curved. Allegedly struck in "Koulz's" alloy, a variant of German silver, with a reeded edge. Research by David Cassel suggests the composition actually originated with French chemist Montchal Roulz. The surfaces appear nickel-gray with splashes of golden patina. A few minor marks are noted.
