1861 Ten Dollar in Copper, Gilt
1861 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-285, Pollock-340, High R.6, PR63 Gilt
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Both the obverse and reverse designs are
similar to that used on regular issue 1861 half eagles, but the
motto GOD OUR TRUST has been added on a scroll in the upper reverse
field. The high date, rounded bun Pollock subvariety. Struck in
copper and gilt with a reeded edge. This is the more frequently
seen High Date variant. The gilt gives the viewer a good
visualization of what this different motto would have looked like
(also it was a much cheaper alternative than striking the coin in
gold). The surfaces retain almost complete gilt, only a tight
cluster of copper specks are seen on the obverse in front of the
bridge of the nose of Liberty, and a few tiny spots are scattered
across the left side of the reverse. Fully struck.
