    Description

    1869 Aluminum Half Dime, Judd-693
    Finest Certified PR67 Ultra Cameo
    Dramatic Rotated Double Strike

    1869 PH10C Seated Half Dime, Judd-693, Pollock-772, High R.7, PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC.
    Design.
    An impression from the regular issues dies in aluminum with a reeded edge. This piece is dramatically double struck with about 10 degrees of separation.

    Commentary. Only five or six examples of this pattern variety are known, and it is doubtful that any others are double struck like this piece. NGC has certified only one other example, a PR63 Cameo, and PCGS has graded three non-Cameo pieces as PR63, PR65, and PR66. The Newman example is double struck, numerically the finest, and the only certified Ultra Cameo specimen: an unbeatable combination.

    Physical Description. The rotated double strike is dramatic and is equaled by the quality of this Superb Gem. Both sides have heavy field-to-device contrast on the light gray aluminum surfaces with deeply mirrored fields. A few lint marks and other Mint-made imperfections on each side are entirely as struck; otherwise, pristine surfaces and exceptional eye appeal.

    Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $20; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
