Dual Denomination $5-25 Francs Pattern, Judd-656 in Copper1868 $5 Liberty Half Eagle, Judd-656, Pollock-729, Low R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. Liberty faces left with a star at the top of a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY. Around, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and below, the date. The reverse features a wreath of oak and laurel enclosing the international denominations of 5 DOLLARS and 25 FRANCS. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is the first of several patterns for an international coinage, with later entries including the 1874 Bickford ten dollar piece and the four dollar gold coins of 1879 and 1880. Attractive chestnut and olive surfaces with splashes of gold and tan. Subtle traces of mint red remain visible on the reverse. About a dozen of these exist with a reeded edge and another dozen exist with a plain edge. Many of the survivors have been gold plated, or gilded.
From The Jones Beach Collection. (PCGS# 60874)
