1869 Pattern Dime. Silver, reeded edge. Judd-708. Pollock-787, Rarity-5. PCGS graded Proof 65. Lovely steel gray toning with hints of blue especially near the periphery. Like the J-709 in this sale, the wreath shows a trace of weakness on the lower portions, but otherwise the coin is sharp. The obverse shows Liberty wearing a plain headband, with a single star in her diadem. On the reverse, there is a lovely laurel and oak wreath, with the date below and denomination at the center. Superb color and surfaces for the grade, PCGS has graded a scant 4 this high, with a single coin graded higher (PR-66). Another opportunity to buy a rare coin in a very high grade. In PCGS holder #3606027 (PCGS # 60933) .
Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,800.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Hollinbeck Stamp & Coin Company's auction circa 1944-46 lot 1558.

Realized $1,783
