1863 Pattern Dime. Billon, plain edge. Judd-326a. Pollock-394, Rarity-7. PCGS graded Proof 64. A rare pattern issue that is seldom offered in any grade. PCGS has graded a total of 10, 2 as PR-63, 6 as PR-64 and 2 as PR-65. These were struck in billon, which is a combination of 75 percent copper and 25 percent silver, and the color appears like a normal copper cent, with the silver more a matter of faith than appearance. The devices are sharp on the simple design. A very choice example of this short-lived Postage Currency coinage (PCGS # 60485) .
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,250.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Hollinbeck Stamp & Coin Company from their auction of December 8, 1945 as lot 1341 for $9.

Realized $2,875
