    1870 Standard Silver Ten Cent in Silver
    Popular William Barber Design
    Judd-826, Richly Toned PR64

    1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-826, Pollock-916, High R.6, PR64 PCGS. William Barber's Seated Liberty design. A seated representation of Liberty faces left. Behind is a free-standing pole topped with a Liberty cap. Liberty's right hand rests upon a shield with a scroll inscribed LIBERTY. The statutory legend follows the border, and the date is below. The reverse has the denomination, 10 CENTS, inside a wreath composed of corn and cotton. Above is the word STANDARD. The reverse rim is much wider than the obverse rim. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Examples with this obverse / reverse combination were struck in silver, copper, and aluminum, each in both reeded and plain edge formats. Only a dozen or so pieces are known in silver with a plain edge and a similar number with a reeded edge. Rich turquoise and gray-blue toning covers each side with bright underlying mirrors in the fields. The most obvious pedigree identifier on this example is a spot of lighter color at 10 o'clock on the obverse.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29V3, PCGS# 61070)
