    1871 Indian Princess Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-1086, PR65 Cameo
    Ex: Green-Newman

    1871 10C Ten Cent, Judd-1086, Pollock-1222, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The 1871 Indian Princess obverse showing 13 stars on the flag and stars 1 and 13 further away from Liberty than on some other 1870- and 1871-dated dies. The reverse is the regular-issue ten cent reverse for the era. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Either two or three examples are known of this pattern, two of which were at one time in the Eric Newman Collection, as purchased by him and Burdette G. Johnson from Col. E.H.R. Green.

    There is noticeable bluntness in the strike on some of the obverse high points, but otherwise this is an appealing (and extremely rare) pattern showing only light hairlines in the fields. The reverse is well-struck, if not quite fully. The occasional striations are to be expected during the manufacture of aluminum planchets, a notoriously recalcitrant metal for coinage.
    Ex: Col. E.H.R. Green; Eric Newman / Burdette G. Johnson; later, Roy Harte Collection, Part 3 (Bowers and Ruddy, 1/1983), lot 2181.
