Ten Dollar Coin Pattern, United States, 1865

<< >>
Description
United States Mint, Philadelphia. Obverse: Liberty head with coronet facing left, date below. Reverse: Eagle, denomination below. This coin is termed a transitional pattern. Transitional patterns are patterns which were, in fact, adopted. However, a transitional pattern shows a date before the year in which the design was actually adopted for circulating coinage. The different element in this pattern is the motto over the eagle, IN GOD WE TRUST. It would appear on normal coinage the following year. This coin is assigned a Rarity-8 by specialists, suggesting that only two or three exist. [reference no. Judd 449]
