    1870 William Barber Dime in Silver
    Judd-831, PR66+ Deep Cameo

    1870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-831, Pollock-921, High R.6, PR66+ Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The William Barber-engraved obverse depicts a seated figure of Liberty facing left and supporting a shield in her right hand, an olive branch in her left. A free-standing liberty pole is present behind the shield. Regular dies reverse. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. About a dozen pieces are known in silver and with this edge. Variants were also struck in copper and aluminum with both edge types. This is a visually arresting pattern. The surfaces are mostly brilliant with just a slight bit of golden color present. The fields are extraordinarily deep and present a strong mirrored background for the thickly frosted devices.
