    1869 Ten Cents in Nickel
    Judd-717a, PR66 Cameo

    1869 10C Ten Cents, Judd-717a, Pollock-798, Cassel-31, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to the regular issue, but without the date in exergue. The reverse has SIL. / NIC. / COP. with the date slightly curved below and in a smaller font. This second reverse design pattern has a reeded edge. Once thought to be struck in "Koulz's Alloy," the A designation in the Judd number indicates this piece is mostly nickel. Both compositions are almost unworkable because of their high nickel content. This is a particularly well-produced piece. Unlike many nickel proofs, this piece has deeply mirrored fields which provide the "black" background for the white frost over the devices, and the resultant cameo contrast. Light golden-rose toning is seen on each side.
