    1863 Dime in Aluminum
    Judd-334, PR64

    1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-334, Pollock-406, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Formerly considered a regular dies trial striking of the Seated Liberty dime for 1863. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. As pointed out in the website, these are actually backdated fantasy pieces made to complete off-metal sets of this year that included the quarter, half, and dollar with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST as used on regular coinage from 1866 to 1891. They were actually made sometime between 1869 and 1875. This piece was made from the 1869 obverse hub with the first S in STATES broken and from an 1869 reverse hub with the die scratch angling upward from the right wreath into the center. The surfaces are bright with streaks of gray across each side, deepening around the margins. Softly struck on the top of the wreath.
