    1873 No Arrows Dime in Copper
    Judd-1268, PR65 Red

    1873 10C No Arrows Dime, Judd-1268, Pollock-1410, High R.7, PR65 Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue No Arrows design for the year. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Off-metal No Arrows dimes were produced in copper and aluminum in 1873. Presumably, they were sold to a handful of collectors and/or dealers who had close ties to the United States Mint. suggests only three or four examples are known in each composition.

    This is a blazing Red Gem, and a coin we last had the pleasure of handling more than 23 years ago. Both sides survive with gorgeous copper-orange color and accents of violet. A couple of carbon spots occur on Liberty's thigh and left of the O in ONE.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/1997), lot 7327.
