    1870 Ten Cents in Aluminum
    Judd-874, PR65+ Cameo
    The Only PCGS Certified Example

    1870 10C Ten Cents, Judd-874, Pollock-971, R.8, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular-issue 1870 Seated Liberty dime dies in aluminum with a reeded edge. This lovely Gem Cameo proof is the only example of Judd-874 that PCGS has certified (1/21). Considered an important rarity in the pattern series, this aluminum dime is one of just two or three that are known. An impressive Plus-graded Gem Cameo proof, this piece has fully and deeply mirrored fields that surround the lustrous gray devices. Prior to technological advances that saw substantial production, aluminum was considered a precious metal, explaining the extremely low coinage quantities.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 800019)
