    1872 Half Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-1192, PR65+ Cameo

    1872 H10C Half Dime, Judd-1192, Pollock-1332, R.8, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies for the 1872 Seated Liberty half dime. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Like some previous years, all of the regular-issue proof coins of 1872 were struck in various off-metals, most notably in copper and aluminum. The off-metal coins are all extremely rare, and the prospect of forming a complete collection would certainly be challenging. Also struck in copper. There are only three aluminum pieces believed extant, with four copper pieces known. The surfaces are bright and undimmed by the passage of time or oxidation. The fields are unfathomably deep in mirrored reflectivity, with starkly contrasting mint frost over the devices. Population: 1 in 65, 0 finer (4/21).
