1863 Postage Currency Ten Cents
1863 P10C Ten Cents, Judd-328, Pollock-398, Cassel-67, High R.7,
PR64 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features the usual
heraldic shield with arrows, surrounded by an inverted laurel
wreath, with the inscription EXCHANGED FOR U.S. NOTES around. The
reverse shows the denomination 10 CENTS in two lines above the
date, with the inscriptions POSTAGE CURRENCY and ACT JULY 1862

copper compositions have been found and some pieces weigh 8 grains

flakes, along with several small patches of oxidation.
