    1874 Bickford Ten in Copper
    Judd-1374, PR66 Brown

    1874 $10 Bickford Ten Dollar, Judd-1374, Pollock-1519, Low R.6, PR66 Brown NGC. 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 (Pound) 2.1.1; MARKEN 41.99; KRONEN 37.31; GULDEN 20.73; and FRANCS 51.81. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. It is estimated that more than a dozen examples are known of this international coinage pattern in copper; however, most lack any trace of red and several have gilt surfaces to resemble the extremely rare gold strikings. This piece displays deep chocolate-brown surfaces with just the faintest remnants of original red still evident on the reverse. Fully struck throughout, the surfaces also appear to be carbon-free.
