    1872 Ten Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1249, PR63 Cameo

    1872 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-1249, Pollock-1391, R.8, PR63 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Regular issue dies for the Coronet eagle struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Although considered a pattern issue, this coin was likely produced to be sold in the off-metal striking sets of the period. The devices are well frosted and show substantial contrast when compared against the mirrored fields on both the obverse and reverse. Examination shows a cluster of short scratches in the field near and on Liberty's nose that account for the grade and a couple of contact marks in the lower left obverse field. The coin retains strong eye appeal and the reverse would be a couple of grade points higher on its own. Fully and completely struck, and generally appealing. This is a coin worthy of a strong bid. For the specialist, this opportunity cannot be taken lightly as only three or fewer examples are known. Once it enters another major collection it may be many years before it reappears.
