    1870 Half Dime in Copper
    Judd-818, PR66 Red and Brown

    1870 H10C Half Dime, Judd-818, Pollock-907, Low R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse shows a figure of Liberty seated facing left, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date 1870 below. Liberty supports a shield with her right hand and holds an olive branch in her left. A liberty pole stands behind the shield, and a scroll inscribed with LIBERTY crosses the shield. The reverse features the regular-issue design. Struck in copper with a plain edge. One of about a dozen known, this pattern would have been included in a complete set of plain-edge silver coinage in copper bearing the same obverse and reverse designs. Glossy mahogany-brown surfaces showcase iridescent accents of blue, violet, green, and orange. Color and preservation are magnificent.
