    1868 Ten Cents in Nickel
    Judd-647, PR67

    1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-647, Pollock-720, Low R.6, PR67 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features the almost identical design used on large cents from 1843 to 1857, and the reverse is similar except TEN CENTS is in the center of the wreath. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. About two dozen patterns of this design exist in nickel, plus a comparable number in copper. This flawless Superb Gem proof showcases a light dusting of golden color over bright nickel-gray surfaces. Heavy die polish appears in the fields. A fascinating piece that will be of interest to pattern collectors and large cent enthusiasts alike.
