    1870 Seated Liberty Dime in Copper
    Judd-834, PR66 Brown
    Remaining Mint Red, Ex: Newman

    1870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-834, Pollock-924, High R.6, PR66 Brown NGC. CAC. 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. 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.

    Unlike most of the copper pieces in this series, this example retains moderate remnants of the original red surrounding the devices, especially on the reverse. Elsewhere the surfaces are deep blue-gray and violet. 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 (4/18).
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection (Heritage, 4/2013), lot 3984, where it brought $3,172.50.
