    1877 Sailor Head Dime in Copper, PR65 Brown
    Standout Example of Judd-1498

    1877 10C Sailor Head Ten Cents, Judd-1498, Pollock-1651, Low R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC. William Barber's portrait of Liberty resembles the famous Sailor Head design but lacks the "sailor" collar. The 13 tiny stars are widely spaced, and the date is at the exergue. The reverse is of the regular-issue Seated dime. A coin without a country since UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is absent. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Beautiful pale blue and pinkish patina and few signs of contact make this a standout example of this rare issue. Population: 2 in 65 Brown, 1 finer (12/14).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2ADM, PCGS# 61833)
