1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-333, Pollock-405, R.7, PR62 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Design. An impression from the regular issue design for Seated Liberty dimes, struck in copper with a reeded edge. Commentary. This pattern is from a different pair of dies than the only die pair known for regular issue 1863 dimes. These patterns were apparently struck in the early 1870s to complete the sets of With Motto silver coins from dies dated 1863 to 1865. Physical Description. Turquoise patina appears on both sides, intermingled with considerable brilliant orange mint color. The fields are reflective where the orange mint color appears, and subdued beneath the turquoise patina. Faint hairlines and other imperfections are evident but minimal. Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $15; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. From The Eric P. Newman Collection.
