Indian Cents on Dime Planchets

Indian Cents struck on silver dime planchets were often offered as patterns in early, circa 1900, auction sales. Several years are reported including 1863, 1864-L, 1868, 1869, 1893, 1900, 1905 and 1908. Additional dates are likely.

The 1864-L and 1869 are listed in the Adams & Woodin pattern book as AW467 and AW825 respectively. The latter, illustrated below, is believed to be unique and to be the original Woodin, Brenner-1914 ANS exhibit. Its more recent pedigree includes lot 829 in Superiorís 9/98 sale, Tony Terranova, Michael Byers and is now in a private collection. Note that the planchet is too small.
