    1870 Half Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-819, PR67+ Deep Cameo
    Ex: Reed Hawn-Queller

    1870 P5C Half Dime, Judd-819, Pollock-909, High R.7, PR67+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC.
    Ex: Simpson. A seated Liberty faces left while supporting a shield with a scroll inscribed with LIBERTY on her right side and holding an olive branch in her left hand. A Phyrgian cap and pole are suspended in the background. UNITED STATES / OF AMERICA occupies the periphery with the date, 1870, in exergue. A regular 1870 half dime reverse die was used to strike the Judd-815 through Judd-820 patterns. HALF DIME is enclosed within a wreath of corn, wheat, oak, and maple, tied with a bow at the bottom. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Examples were also struck in silver and copper. Only three or four pieces are believed known of the reeded edge and plain edge variants that were struck in aluminum. Incredible field-device contrast earned this piece a Deep Cameo designation by PCGS. The razor-sharp strike and virtually untouched surfaces combine to further justify a Superb Gem grade. Finest known by two points (6/20).
    Ex: Reed Hawn Collection (Stack's, 3/1977), lot 767; The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1725.
