Description 1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-649, Pollock-722, Low R.7, PR63 NGC. An 1868 Seated dime struck in aluminum with a reeded edge from the regular-issue dies for the year. This piece shows a considerable amount of contrast between the fields and devices, and scattered surface ticks and contact marks that define the grade are minor. The 1868 Seated dime is a better date in the regular series, and this aluminum pattern would certainly enhance an advanced collection either of patterns or Seated dimes. NGC and PCGS combined show a total of 10 submissions of this pattern issue in all grades, including Cameo coins. Part of a complete 16-piece aluminum proof set. Ex: Treasury Secretary Hugh McCulloch (circa 1868); McCulloch family; Eric Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2610.85. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
