    1871 Standard Silver Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-1082, PR62

    1871 10C Standard Silver Ten Cents, Judd-1082, Pollock-1218, R.8, PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. James Longacre's Seated Liberty design with Liberty's head decorated with an Indian headdress, paired with the reverse that features 10 CENTS in the center, surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn, and the word STANDARD at the top of the reverse. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. This design was also struck in copper, but it's the aluminum strikes that are the rarity with only two examples believed known. The surfaces are bright with reflective fields, but there is an unfortunate streak of oxidation on the obverse and just a bit on the lower reverse.
    Ex: Dr. Jerry Buss Collection (Superior, 1/1985), lot 571; Franklinton Sale (Stack's, 1/2008), lot 1198; Boston Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 8/2010), lot 1398.
