    Superb Proof 1870 Standard Silver Dime

    1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-861, Pollock-949, High R.6, PR67 NGC. The extensive series of Standard Silver pattern coinage included several design variations for both the obverse and the reverse, and the different combinations of these designs led to an extensive and complicate emission. Superb Gem examples of any of these various pattern issues are extremely rare. We believe that this example is the single finest known example of this variety, from an admittedly small population of less than 20 coins. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices have excellent luster. This Superb example is essentially brilliant with only the slightest gold toning at the borders.
    From The A. James Evans Collection.(#61105)
