1870 Pattern Dime. Silver, reeded edge. Judd-843. Pollock-942, High rarity-5. PCGS graded Proof 65. Sharp and original, with magnificent blue gray toning on both sides. The colors on this one are even prettier than most, which is saying a lot. A couple of minor, faint hairlines from a higher grade, but this gem will satisfy most collectors with ease. PCGS has graded 4 this high, with just 2 graded higher, both PR-66 above. Standard Silver coins are certainly beautiful, and to find several such lovely toned gems to choose from will make this a sale to remember for many years to come. The reverse die is rotated about 10 degrees counter clockwise as often seen on this die pairing (PCGS # 61087) .
Estimated Value $1,300 - 1,500.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Ira S. Reed's Auction of March 30, 1946 lot 688 for $7.25.

Realized $1,955
