Miscellaneous
1860 H10¢ Judd-267 PCGS MS 66 CAC One of the few US Patterns familiar to non-collectors of the series. It is known asThe Coin without a Country as neither side includes the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This transitional pattern resulted from the Mint's decision to move the legend from the reverse to the obverse. Anthony Paquet's 1859 seated liberty figure is paired with James Longacre's new reverse. Neither design incorporated the legend. About 100 pieces are known, many in high grade as they were not coined for circulation. The Simpson coin, PCGS MS 68, is the finest; it may be viewed HERE. All examples show areas of striking weakness. This example last appeared in Stack's/Bowers 2014 Americana Sale. It is semi-prooflike with indescribably pretty toning, mostly likely imparted by storage in tissue paper. As with all coins in this offering it comes with a 5-day return privilege. Beware -- once the coin is in your hands you will NOT let loose of it! $9200.00
