    1838 Seated Dime Obverse Splasher
    Judd-A1838-1, MS64

    1838 10C Ten Cent Die Trial, Judd-A1838-1, Pollock-3049, R.8, MS64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Die trial for the Liberty Seated Dime, from an unfinished die with a single star placed between Liberty's head and her pole. White metal splasher. This is one of two similar pieces. One is the property of the Library Company of Philadelphia. This is the other -- the Judd plate coin. The flash around the border is differently shaped, confirming that it is, in fact, a second representative.

    Each side exhibits light gray surfaces with hints of gold color. The fields are subdued with considerable brilliant luster. These splashers are extremely thin and light, and are often brittle, sometimes breaking into pieces if not handled extremely carefully. This piece has been exceptionally well taken care of.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 4592.
