    1870 Half Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-823, PR67 Cameo

    1870 P5C Half Dime, Judd-823, Pollock-913, R.8, PR67 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies for the 1870 half dime. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Only two or three of these off-metal patterns are believed extant, according to A small number of year sets were produced in copper, aluminum, and nickel for sale to collectors, dealers, and other well-connected Mint insiders. This is only the third time we have handled an example of Judd-823 going back to 1993, when our Permanent Auction Archive was established. These are rare patterns and well-deserving of a premium bid. Each side features blatant Cameo contrast amid completely brilliant, thickly frosted surfaces.
