Description

Unique Judd-A1860-6 Trial Piece for
Judd-271, MS64 Brown
Ex: F.C.C. Boyd, Kosoff

(1860) Five Dollar, Judd-A1860-6, Unique, MS64 Brown NGC. Plated on page 300 of the 2009 tenth edition of Judd, this piece is described as "reverse hand-punched trial illustrating peripheral legends for the Judd-271 half eagle, but with different spacing." The slender, tall lettering suggests the work of assistant engraver Anthony C. Paquet, famous for his briefly coined Liberty double eagle reverse. The obverse displays the statutory reverse legend for Judd-271 aligned with a circular guide line. The V in FIVE is an inverted A, as on Judd-271. A partial inner guide line is present, and is accompanied by the letter U. Presumably, Paquet began the legend with this letter, then decided upon a legend placement proper for a larger denomination coin (Judd-271 had the diameter of an eagle with only half the edge width, to make it more difficult for a cheat to hollow out the coin and replace the gold content with a different alloy). Light tan-brown with unabraded matte surfaces.
Ex: Robert Coulton Davis; F.C.C. Boyd; Abe Kosoff Estate (Bowers and Merena, 11/1985), lot 1166; Stack's (1/1989), lot 674.
