Description:
Gilt Copper 1879 Judd-1636 Flowing Hair Stella
1879 $4 Flowing Hair Four Dollar Stella, Judd-1636, Pollock-1834, Low R.7, PR64 Gilt NGC. Charles Barber's Flowing Hair design. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Gold-plated or gilt, possibly at the Mint before it was distributed. Although more than a dozen copper impressions of this design are known, only three or four of those are gilt like this one. Both sides are bright greenish-yellow with fully reflective fields and a hint of cameo contrast.
All of the physical characteristics of this piece suggest that it was gilded at the Mint, although this cannot be proven, to the best of our knowledge. It is clearly known that some patterns were gold-plated after they left the Mint, but it is also believed that pieces were intentionally made this way. Pattern issues that were gilded within the Mint should clearly be considered separate, collectible varieties, given distinct "Judd numbers."
From The Jones Beach Collection. (PCGS# 82015)
