    1870 Standard Silver Dime in Copper
    Judd-827, PR66 Brown

    1870 10C Standard Silver Dime, Judd-827, Pollock-917, Low R.7, PR66 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse depicts William Barber's seated figure of Liberty. She faces left and supports a shield in her right hand, and an olive branch in her left. A free-standing liberty pole is present behind the shield. On the reverse, 10 CENTS is within a wreath of cotton and corn, with the inscription STANDARD above. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Judd-827 is interesting for its mismatched dies, confirmed by a much broader reverse rim. This beautiful Premium Gem ranks among the finest survivors of the pattern variety. The surfaces display sky-blue, canary-gold, and ruby-red hues across watery fields and boldly struck motifs. Population: 1 in 66 Brown, 0 finer (9/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29V4, PCGS# 61071)
