    1873 Seated Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-1269, PR64 Cameo
    Extremely Rare

    1873 10C No Arrows, Closed 3, Seated Dime, Judd-1269, Pollock-1411, R.8, PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck from regular dies, but in aluminum with a reeded edge. A few complete proof sets, from the cent to double eagle, were struck in aluminum for sale to advanced collectors of the day. Judd-1269 was a part of those sets, and suggests that they were struck early in the year, before the Open 3 and Arrows were introduced. This intricately impressed Choice dime is untoned and attractive with minimal carbon and a pair of minor flan imperfections below the I in DIME. As of (9/20), the present lot is the sole Judd-1269 pattern certified by PCGS. NGC has graded two pieces, as PR64 and PR66 (9/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 399303, Base PCGS# 61554)
