    Magnificent PR65 Cameo Indian Princess 1871 Dime Pattern
    Judd-1079, Possibly Ex: Farouk

    1871 10C Ten Cents, Judd-1079, Pollock-1215, High R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. A figure of Liberty is seated and facing left with 1871 below. She is wearing an Indian headdress and is supporting a liberty pole with her right hand. Her left hand rests on a globe inscribed LIBERTY. The reverse is the same design used on production issues. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge.
    Saul Teichman states that three pieces are known, and the pedigrees of each of these were listed in our FUN auction from 2007. Saul also states that a fourth piece may exist and it might be from the legendary Farouk Sale (1954). While this piece is the same grade as the Bass coin that we sold in July 2003, the pedigree markers are different on the two coins. This may, indeed, be the Farouk specimen.
    The surfaces are brilliant throughout with the bright, gleaming reflectivity that is so appealing on proof aluminum patterns. The same peripheral die cracks are present on this piece as on the Bass coin. On this example, the central design motifs are exceptionally frosted and present a stark cameo contrast against the deeply mirrored fields. A magnificent pattern. The lack of peripheral obverse stars gives this piece a medal-like appearance that adds greatly to its overall appearance. (NGC ID# 6PZH, PCGS# 61338)
