1870 Standard Silver Dime in Copper
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).
