    1874 Bickford Ten Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1374, PR64+ Red

    1874 $10 Bickford Eagle, Judd-1374, Pollock-1519, R.6, PR64+ Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse depicts a bust of Liberty facing left with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and the date below. Liberty wears a diadem inscribed with the word LIBERTY and ornamented with six stars. The weight 16.72 GRAMS, the standard of the metal 900 FINE, and the word UBIQUE are centered on the reverse. Around the periphery is the U.S. denomination DOLLARS 10 and the following international equivalents: STERLING £2.1.1; MARKEN 41.99; KRONEN 37.31; GULDEN 20.73; and FRANCS 51.81. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. There are more than a dozen copper pieces known with a reeded edge and about the same number with a plain edge. Two aluminum examples have been traced, along with two pieces in nickel. The stars, of course, are the two examples struck in gold of this iconic design. This is an original full red copper Bickford ten dollar. The surfaces are unmellowed and the grade is explained by a few specks of carbon scattered across each side. Fully struck.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AAF, PCGS# 81678)
