    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. 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 (4/20). Considered an important rarity in the pattern series, this aluminum dime is one of just two or three that are known. An impressive 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.
