    1869 Half Dime in Nickel
    Judd-694, PR64
    Extremely Rare

    1869 H10C Half Dime, Judd-694, Pollock-773, R.8, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Produced with regular-issue half dime dies. A seated Liberty holds a pole and cap in her left hand while a shield with a ribbon inscribed with the word LIBERTY rests against her. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA encircles the obverse periphery, with the date in exergue. ONE DIME is within an ornate wreath on the reverse. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. Rated R.8 by Judd, while according to USPatterns.com, "about a half dozen" examples are known. The latter resource suggests that these pieces were not technically dies trial strikes, but rather were deliberately struck to be sold to collectors, possibly as part of complete off-metal sets. Indeed, examples are known in copper, aluminum, and nickel. As one would expect, the hardness of nickel makes this otherwise familiar design almost impossible to fully strike up. Slight softness is noted on the head of Liberty, but significant weakness is seen at the top of the wreath on the reverse. Light golden toning is seen over each side with occasional glimpses of lilac interspersed.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
