1870 Standard Silver Ten Cents in Silver
1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-825, Pollock-915, Low
R.7, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A figure of Liberty
seated faces left. She supports a shield and a Liberty pole stands
behind. The reverse shows the denomination 10 CENTS within a wreath
of cotton and corn, the inscription STANDARD is above. Struck in
silver with a reeded edge. About a dozen pieces are known that were
struck in silver with this edge. Examples were also produced in
copper and aluminum, using both edge variants. This is a stunning,
upper-end example that is all-brilliant. The fields are deeply
reflective and showcase the frosted devices to cameo effect.
