A spectacular and rare pattern 1869 dime in copper, Judd-710/Pollock-789, will be a focal point in our upcoming iAuction #3507. Graded Proof-65 RB by PCGS, this beauty exhibits a bold strike and exquisite toning highlights including coppery red with emerald green and peach undertones. Judd-710 is a Rarity-7- issue, with perhaps just a dozen or so examples known in all grades. The specimen in the upcoming iAuction is the finest PCGS-graded example of J-710 within any color designation. None are equal to this specimen in the eyes of PCGS, a sure sign of the quality offered and a drawing card to collectors of the pattern coinage of the United States. Additionally, CAC has deemed the coin to be worthy of the assigned grade. If pattern coinage is your collecting pursuit, you’ll be glad you checked in with iAuction #3507!
