    1869 Ten Cents in Silver
    Judd-716A, PR64

    1869 10C Ten Cents, Judd-716A, Pollock-796, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. 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 with the date below, in a smaller font, and slightly curved. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. When we last handled this example in 2003, we noted: "A SEM-EDX analysis (#3504498) was performed (but the report is now lost) which indicated the piece is actually 95.8% silver and 4.2% copper." Specific gravity for this piece was listed as 10.44. Both sides are bright silver with deeply mirrored, striated fields. A few stray contact marks are evident. One of fewer than six examples believed extant.
    Ex: Fred E. Olsen Collection (B. Max Mehl, 11/1944), lot 318; Julian Leidman (1972); Gene Wolfe; Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 7/2003), lot 9979.
