    1870 Half Dime in Silver
    Judd-816, PR66
    Ex: Eliasberg

    1870 H10C Half Dime, Judd-816, Pollock-905, Low R.7, PR66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. William Barber's obverse shows his version of the Seated Liberty design with Liberty facing left, wearing a long, flowing gown. An olive branch is held in her left hand, and her right hand rests on a shield, holding a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY. A cap and pole stands in the background. Around, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, with the date below. The reverse is the regular-issue design with HALF DIME inside a wreath. Struck in silver with a plain edge. These patterns exist in various combinations of silver, copper, or aluminum with plain or reeded edges. About a dozen Judd-816 pieces are known. Both sides are shrouded in an array of natural blue, violet, golden, and orange tones. Eye appeal is fantastic.
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 190.
