    1871 Standard Silver Half Dime in Copper
    Judd-1066, PR67 Red and Brown
    Finest Certified

    1871 H10C Standard Silver Half Dime, Judd-1066, Pollock-1201, R.7, PR67 Red and Brown NGC. CAC.
    Longacre's Indian princess design is featured on the obverse, with stars around the periphery. The reverse displays the denomination inside of a wreath of cotton and corn and the inscription STANDARD above, i.e., the "Standard Reverse" design of 1870. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Commentary. As with many Standard Silver issues, this design was implemented by William Barber but based on a design by James Longacre, who died two years previously. This is the most frequently seen of the four Longacre designs of this year with an estimated dozen or so known.

    Physical Description. Technically NGC is correct in calling this pattern Red and Brown, but it will require close examination to actually discover the Brown part of that color designation. The Brown is really pale blue, scattered here and there around the margins. The surfaces show varying shades of red, with cherry-red and bright orange-red alternating. The fields are also highly reflective, and the obverse displays evidence of a strongly striated die. The strike is sharply brought up with even detailing on both obverse and reverse. The only identifying mark we see is a small grease stain (as struck) below star 6 This is the finest Judd-1066 certified in any color designation at both grading services (3/13).
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
