    1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-646, Pollock-718, R.7, PR63 PCGS. This piece also appeared in the 2000 F.U.N. Signature Sale where it was cataloged, "11.3 grains. The obverse has an ornamental shield in the center with an inverted laurel wreath suspended from a ring. A pair of crossed arrows is behind the shield. The peripheral device reads EXCHANGED FOR U.S. NOTES. Like the two pieces above, the reverse displays ONE DIME, 1868, and a six-pointed star in the center, surrounded by a cereal wreath. A SEM-EDX analysis (#3504476) was performed, indicating the coin contains 85.5% aluminum and 12.4% silver, with traces of silicon (1.3%) and iron (0.8%). Struck with a plain edge.
    The surfaces are dazzling because of the aluminum/silver alloy; but unfortunately, some oxidation has set in on the obverse with just a bit on the reverse."
    Purchased by Sol Kaplan from Sotheby's Palace Collection of King Farouk of Egypt (February-March, 1954), lot 1815. Formerly owned by Woodin and Schulman. Hans Schulman sold this piece to King Farouk. Mr. Wolfe purchased this aluminum pattern from Sol Kaplan in 1972. Another example of the Judd-646 coin can be found in the Smithsonian Institution Collection.
