    1879 Washlady Dime in Silver, PR66
    One of the Famous 'Named' Pattern Series

    1879 10C Washlady Ten Cents, Judd-1584, Pollock-1777, Low R.6, PR66 NGC. CAC. The Washlady design is attributed to Charles Barber, 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. This design was issued in four denominations from the dime to the silver dollar, and each was struck in copper and silver. In addition, the two largest denominations are known in white metal, and each is unique in that metal. This is an impressive high-grade example that shows better striking details than the Genaitis coin. Rich sea-green and blue centers are framed by bright golden-rose margins.
