    Judd-1584, PR66+ Cameo

    1879 10C Washlady Dime, Judd-1584, Pollock-1777, High R.6, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Charles Barber's popular "Washlady" design, with Liberty's hair bound behind the head. The obverse has UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the border with the date below the bust. The reverse has a wreath around a beaded circle that contains ONE DIME with E PLURIBUS UNUM framed above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. A popular Charles Barber design that has been known to appeal to collectors of regular issue dimes as well as patterns. This high-end Cameo example is virtually pristine, with reflective, contrasted fields and frosty devices. A dusting of light champagne toning graces each side. Eye appeal is outstanding.
