    Description

    1870 Seated Liberty Dime in Copper
    Judd-834, PR66 Brown
    Significant Remaining Mint Red

    1870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-834, Pollock-924, High R.6, PR66 Brown NGC. CAC.
    Design.
    The William Barber obverse depicts a seated figure of Liberty facing left and supporting a shield in her right hand with an olive branch in her left. A free-standing liberty pole is present behind the shield. The reverse is from a regular issue Seated dime reverse die. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

    Commentary: Among the several hundred variants of 1870-dated patterns, this series is one of the more completable ones. The silver and copper strikings of this die pairing are obtainable with patience, and only the aluminum pieces present a significant collecting challenge.

    Physical Description: Unlike most of the copper pieces in this series, this example retains significant remnants of the original red surrounding the devices, especially on the reverse. Elsewhere the surfaces are deep blue-gray. The strike is well-defined in most areas with just the slightest weakness on the head of Liberty and the upper leaves of the wreath. There are no obvious marks or spots that would serve as pedigree identifiers. This is the finest Brown example certified by either of the major services (2/13),
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
