    1869 Dime Pattern, Cupro-Nickel
    Judd-717A, PR66
    The Finest SIL. / NIC. / COP. Design

    1869 10C Ten Cents, Judd-717A, Pollock-798, Cassel-31, High R.7, PR66 NGC. 44.60 grains. 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 and was a modification of the virtually unworkable "Koulz's Alloy." This piece has been SEM-EDX tested at Ledoux & Company Certificate Number 919577-012 and the results are: 76% copper, 23% nickel, 0.2% silicon, 0.1% iron, 0.1% cobalt, and 0.05% silver. This composition was also very difficult to produce because of the high nickel content. This particular piece is the finest known at both services (5/15). The bright nickel-gray fields show light oil-slick iridescence that is most attractive, and the devices are especially well struck considering the hardness of the alloy.
    Ex: Heritage FPL (9/22/1998), offered as a Judd-716; Kagin's private treaty (3/2000) to David Cassel.
    From The David Cassel Collection. (NGC ID# 29S2, PCGS# 60944)
