1868 Ten Cents in Nickel
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.
