Description

Attractive 1865 Gold Dollar
Struck in Copper
Judd-438, PR62 Brown

1865 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-438, Pollock-511, Low R.7, PR62 Brown NGC.
Design.
Both obverse and reverse dies are the design adopted for use on regular-issue gold dollar coinage in 1865. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
Classified as a die trial issue by many researchers, Judd-438 is more likely a numismatic delicacy, coined for sale to collectors circa 1870. There are approximately one dozen examples extant, with one specimen impounded in the Connecticut State Library and another in the ANS Collection. Auction appearances are uncommon, so this specimen represents an important opportunity for the advanced collector.

Physical Description.
The obverse is sharp and well detailed. The reverse shows some softness on the bow and wreath. The surfaces are deeply toned with mottled yellow-green on the obverse and even light blue patina over the reverse. NGC and PCGS combined have graded only three coins finer in the Brown category (11/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Auction '85 (Stack's, 7/1985), lot 902.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60623)

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
