    Description

    1863 10C Ten Cents, Judd-326A, Pollock-394, R.7, PR 63 PCGS. The third in a series of patterns boasting the same design, this plain-edge piece is struck in an alloy known as billon. Billon is a primarily copper alloy coin with less than half its weight in silver. Examples of this pattern are known with weights ranging from 24.5 grains to 25.3 grains. In the past, pattern catalogers have assumed a proportion of 75% copper and 25% silver. The eight pieces tested up to January 2000 have ranged from 81% copper and 19% silver to 85% copper and 15% silver. Records indicate that 27 pieces were struck May 27, 1863, and at the time, the intrinsic value of this token coin was just shy of 1.5 cents.
    Deep gray toning envelops both sides of this Choice Proof pattern and a small die crack is noted in the U and S of the inscription U.S. NOTES.
    Ex: Louis Eliasberg Sr.
