Ten Cents Coin Pattern, United States, 1916

United States Mint, Philadelphia. Obverse: Liberty head in winged cap, date below. Reverse: Fasces with laurel branch entwined. This pattern was designed by Adolph A. Weinman. The obverse of this pattern shows the head with a different placement than the version finally selected for coinage. The reverse, however, is quite similar to the design that went into circulation. This example is one of six known for this pattern. [reference no. Judd 1794]
