Judd-659 Variant in Aluminum, PR63
After the international monetary convention in Paris in June 1867, a coinage bill was introduced to produce a five dollar / 25 franc gold coin with a weight of 124.45 grains, rather than the standard 129 grains. This experimental international coin, of course, went nowhere but patterns were produced in copper and aluminum. This is a lovely, unoxidized example that has a few rim defects that mostly account for the PR63 grade.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (PCGS# 60877)
