    1870 Ten Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-836, PR66+ Cameo

    1870 P10C Ten Cents, Judd-836, Pollock-927, High R.7, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the William Barber Liberty Seated design, with Liberty holding a pole topped by a Liberty cap. UNITED STATES is to the left and OF AMERICA to the right; the date 1870 is below. The shield is behind her rather than in front, with drapery reading LIBERTY across the top. The reverse is the regular dime die of the year. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Only three or four examples of this type are known. The present PR66+ Cameo offering is almost certainly the finest among them, with fully brilliant surfaces showing stark contrast. Thickly frosted devices are set against glassy, contact-free fields. Population: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (5/21).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29VC, PCGS# 800021)
