    1870 Standard Silver Half Dime in Silver
    Judd-809, PR65 Cameo

    1870 H10C Standard Silver Half Dime, Judd-809, Pollock-897, Low R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's Seated Liberty design is paired with a familiar Standard Silver reverse motif, a wreath of corn and cotton and 5 CENTS in the center. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The small physical size of the five cent pattern resulted in slight differences in the design. The cap on the pole resembles a large number 2, for example. The ribbon ends in a single tail distant from the U in UNITED, rather than the double tail below UN on the larger denomination patterns. About a dozen pieces are known. The reddish-golden centers are surrounded byte wide band of blue around the margins. Noticeably contrasted on each side.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 800029)
