    Superb Proof 1871 Judd-1079 Dime, Finest of Three Known

    1871 10C Indian Princess Dime, Judd-1079, Pollock-1215, R.8, PR67 NGC. This is Longacre's Indian Princess design in a plain field, as described at Judd-1016. The reverse is the regular issue Seated Liberty dime design. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Although most literature suggests that this pattern issue is R.7, it is now believed that just three pieces are known, according to Saul Teichman and In addition to this example, the Bass Collection had a PR65 piece identified by a tiny planchet flaw outside the wreath at 3:30 and the Bowers and Merena November 1988 sale had a piece graded PR60. The surfaces are dazzling and brilliant with deep reflectivity in the fields set against frosted devices that yield a pleasing cameo effect. Superb quality.
    For the pedigree researcher, we offer the following Census:
    PR67 NGC. The example presently offered. Jay Parrino; Goldberg Coins (2000); Heritage (2/2001), lot 7476; Heritage (5/2001), lot 9470; Heritage (8/2001), lot 8369; later to our consignor.
    PR65 PCGS. Waldorf Sale (Abner Kreisberg, 2/1960), lot 2363; 1971 ANA (Stack's, 8/1971), lot 415; Harry W. Bass, Jr. (Bowers and Merena, 5/1999), lot 1107; Heritage (7/2003), lot 10019.
    PR60. Stack's (2/1967); Bowers and Merena (11/1988), lot 5404. The Pollock plate coin.
    In addition to these three pieces, Pollock listed an example that appeared in the King Farouk sale of 1954, although it is now impossible to know if that piece is one of these, or a fourth specimen.
