    1870 Half Dime in Copper
    Judd-821, PR65 Brown

    1870 H10C Half Dime, Judd-821, Pollock-911, High R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. From regular issue 1870 half dime dies, but struck in copper with a reeded edge. A few 1870 proof sets, from the cent to double eagle, were struck in copper, with Judd-821 included in those complete denomination sets. The present Gem displays rich sea-green and butter-gold toning. The strike is good if shy of complete. No marks or hairlines are apparent, and the grade is limited solely by small spots west of the D, and south of the M, in DIME. As of (9/20), PCGS has graded just three specimens in all grades.
