    Judd-854, Dazzling Aluminum Striking
    1870 Standard Silver Dime, PR66 Cameo

    1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-854, Pollock-962, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. A bust of Liberty faces right on the obverse. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around the periphery and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll below. On the reverse one can see the denomination 10 CENTS and the date 1870 within a wreath of cotton and corn. The word STANDARD is at the top. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. These Standard Silver issues were sold in sets with other designs and denominations by the Mint for $15. Less than a half dozen examples are believed known of this plain edge variant. The surfaces are dazzling and deeply mirrored with sharply contrasting devices. The reverse is rotated approximately 40 degrees. This and a couple of shallow planchet flakes above the back portion of Liberty's hair will help identify this piece in the future.
