    Judd-869, High R.7, PR63 Brown

    1870 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-869, Pollock-965, High R.7, PR63 Brown NGC.
    Obverse Liberty Head with hair bun and star on headband, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, motto IN GOD WE TRUST on scroll below. Reverse 10 / CENTS inside a small oak and laurel wreath. STANDARD SILVER, in large letters, arcs along the top half of the reverse rim. The date 1870 is at the lower reverse rim. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    A rare copper, reeded edge variant, rated High R.7 in the Judd reference. Further confirmation is provided by the paucity of certified survivors.

    Physical Description.
    Yellow, blue, and rose highlights flash under a light on this Select proof piece. A curly lintmark is noted in the right obverse field under Liberty's throat, providing a pedigree marker. Other lintmarks and minor contact evidence appear on the reverse. Despite the seemingly modest grade, plenty of appeal remains on this piece. This is the sole certified example at NGC, while PCGS has certified four pieces in PR64 and PR65 (11/08).

    Ex: Stack's private treaty.
