    1870 Aluminum Ten Cents by William Barber
    Judd-829, PR65 Cameo

    1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-829, Pollock-919, High R.7, PR65 Cameo NGC. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's left-facing seated Liberty holds a shield at her right side and an olive branch in her left hand. A scroll inscribed with LIBERTY flows across the shield, and a crudely fashioned cap and pole are suspended in the background. UNITED STATES / OF AMERICA occupies the periphery with the date, 1870, in exergue. On the reverse 10 / CENTS is within an open wreath of cotton and corn, tied with a bow at the bottom. STANDARD -- in small letters -- is found at the edge above the wreath, and the rim is unusually wide. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. It is estimated that less than half a dozen such pieces are known. This is an exceptionally pleasing example that has bright surfaces with noticeable contrast between the fields and devices. A couple of planchet flaws and one contact mark are noted on each side. (NGC ID# 3ZSK, PCGS# 61073)
