    1878 Ten Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1582, PR63 Red and Brown
    Unique in Private Hands

    1878 $10 Ten Dollars, Judd-1582, Pollock-1775, R.8, PR63 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Liberty wears a large soft cap with a band inscribed LIBERTY, similar to the Morgan silver dollar design. E PLURIBUS UNUM is divided between the left and right obverse fields with the date below. The reverse has an eagle with outstretched wings, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and TEN DOLLARS below. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST appears in the upper reverse field. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Three examples of Judd-1582 are known, two of which reside in the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution.

    Reflective surfaces have light reddish-tan color with traces of iridescent toning and splashes of brighter orange mint luster on each side. Minor spots and hairlines prevent a higher grade. This is a rare opportunity to obtain the unique-in-private-hands example of this 1878 ten dollar pattern in copper.
