    1871 Ten Cents in Nickel
    Judd-1089, PR64 Cameo

    1871 10C Ten Cents, Judd-1089, Pollock-1225, R.8, PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. An alleged dies trial strike that was most likely struck in an off-metal for sale to collectors. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. Examples were also struck aluminum. The copper strikes are significantly more available but only a half-dozen are believed known. The nickel strike was previously believed to be unique, as indicated in the 10th edition of the Judd reference. However, Saul Teichman notes that the Simpson piece does not appear to match the example from Superior's sale from September 2002; thus, making the nickel strikes R.8. The surfaces are nickel-white with several tiny planchet voids scattered over each side. The strike is surprisingly strong for a nickel product.
