    1870 Standard Silver Half Dime
    Judd-809, PR67
    The Finest Certified

    1870 H10C Standard Silver Half Dime, Judd-809, Pollock-897, R.7, PR67 NGC. CAC.
    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.

    Commentary. 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. The Newman specimen is the only certified PR67 example from a combined NGC and PCGS population of 10 submissions.

    Physical Description. Blue, magenta, and gold toning appears on both sides of this Superb Gem proof. The fields are fully mirrored with lustrous devices, resulting in light cameo contrast that is visible through the toning. All design elements are boldly impressed.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
