    Gilt 1874 Bickford Ten Dollar, Judd-1375, PR62

    1874 $10 Bickford Ten Dollar, Judd-1375, Pollock-1520, Low R.7, PR62 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 and gilt. This gilt piece approximates the appearance of what this pattern would look like in gold--an affordable alternative given that only two examples are known in gold (see our recent FUN Sale for photos and information about one of those legendary pieces). There are no obvious or distracting blemishes on either side, but a planchet crack is located just to the left of the date. The gilt has a subtle iridescent streakiness. An exceptionally attractive coin for the grade. (NGC ID# 2AAJ, PCGS# 61679)
